CALL FOR HELP: A nifty person who used to work at Wolf Park has since founded the 501(c)3 non-profit Indiana Coyote Rescue Center. Since most states regard coyotes as vermin, this is a unique center with a rare and noble mission -- to be nice to coyotes. Not many places are.
darkwolph and I visited the Center a while ago and hung out with its many critters. It's tiny (very tiny) and it's run by one shoestrung but well-meaning lady (CeAnn) who pretty much has devoted her entire life to these poor critters.
Well, some complete ass snuck onto her property on the night of January 27th and shot one of her coyotes point-blank in the face (graphic images). Wolphy and I met this particular coyote, Amber, during our visit; she was sweet and trusting and loved everyone. She rolled over for complete strangers, wiggled, and demanded bellyrubs. Imagining the kind of person who could shoot an animal like that in the face....*gnnnh*. I get quite angry.
The ICRC is on a shoestring budget and poor CeAnn is now stuck with almost $1,000 in bills for Amber's medical care and reinforcing her fencing so this does not happen again. Please, if you have a dime (or more than a dime)...could you send it to her?
If you don't have a dime, can you pass this along?
