Jasa is a neutered male coyote who came to Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in the Spring of 2014 when he was 5 years old.
Jasa lives with his long-time companion, a female coyote named Lyla Rose. They have been a couple since 2009 when they were both young pups.
Jasa is an acrobatic guy! it was suggested to us that we put a little trampoline in the habitat. Paw prints would appear on it every morning, but we weren’t sure if he or Lyla Rose played on it. We decided to try to solve the mystery by setting up a surveillance camera. It turns out, Jasa did play on the trampoline!

Jasa is a bit shy but playful! He likes play-bowing at his caretaker, running around his house, and peeing in his freshly cleaned water bucket when his caretaker isn’t looking!
Like many of our wild-spirited rescues, Jasa is shy. Large crowds of people make him nervous. Due to his fear of new people, he is not a big fan of new caretakers at first.
Our gorgeous boy first arrived at Indiana Coyote Rescue Center (ICRC) in the summer of 2009 when he was a teeny five-week-old pup. A Conservation Officer brought the baby boy to the center. The story was that some hunters found the wild-born Jasa and rescued him. The hunters had attempted to keep Jasa as a pet but then turned him over.
The Conservation Officer guessed that the hunters might have taken Jasa from a den before he was even two weeks old. Whatever the real story, Jasa could not be released back into the wild because he was already too socialized with humans, according to Indiana State regulations. Luckily for Jasa, Lyla was already at ICRC and the two rescues were allowed to grow up together. Lyla does not like most people and often made it difficult for caretakers to interact with Jasa, so he usually takes a while to warm up to humans.
Unlike his feisty friend, Jasa has never shown signs of aggression towards people with whom he has bonded. Jasa is feeling more comfortable with us, and we are so glad to offer him more room to run! Thanks to ICRC for being such a fantastic, caring place and allowing us to be part of their work.
