How a Puppy from Kingston Wound Up in a Coyote Pack
An American Bulldog from Kingston spent a couple of years living with a pack of coyotes, but now he is up for adoption.
Wiley was just a puppy when he started hanging out with the wrong crowd. There is no way of knowing how he got involved with the coyote pack, but it seems like he has been with them for a long time. Coyotes do hang together like a family, and that is why some think they just let Wiley become part of their group.
According to the Times Herald-Record, residents would hear the howls at night, and they started to see the bulldog running with the coyote just outside Kingston.
Sarah Nace and her husband were the first to notice the young white dog playing with the coyotes in the open grassland under the power lines strung near their house outside Kingston. That was about 18 months ago.
A no-kill feeding trap was set up outside and eventually, Wiley was caught. He is now up for adoption at the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge in New Jersey. Nobody has come forward to claim him as their missing pet.
The question is what kind of pet will he be? According to the staff at the animal refuge, he is very friendly and is not acting like a coyote. He was just cold and hungry, trying to stay alive in the wild. Now Wiley is ready to become part of a human family, instead of a coyote family.
