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 is a shy boy but more confident around people than his companion, Lyla Rose. As a truly wild animal, a fear of humans is instinctive; however, Jasa seems to become more confident around Caretakers the longer he knows them and even comes up to take treats from people’s hands on occasion.
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 loves to charge the fence at Arctic wolf, Flurry, whenever he walks by on one of his enrichment walks.
Likes & Dislikes
Jasa loves peeing in his water bucket, much to the dismay of his Caretakers who find his water with a lovely yellow tint and strong odor at least once a day.
As a shy animal, Jasa does not like new people, especially in crowds, and as a result he and his companion, Lyla Rose, live off of the tour path.
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, brought there by a Conservation Officer after some hunters found the wild-born pup and rescued him. The hunters had attempted to keep Jasa as a pet but quickly turned him over after realizing how difficult he was to care for.
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 habituated to humans, according to Indiana State regulations. Luckily for Jasa, a female coyote named Lyla Rose 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 long time to warm up to humans.
Thanks to ICRC for being such a fantastic, caring place and allowing us to be part of their work.
