Isabelle was only two weeks old when she arrived at Safe Haven, and our staff had to take turns bottle feeding her through the night. The state of Nevada does not permit rehabilitating and rereleasing coyotes back into the wild, so Isabelle became one of our permanent residents.
Isabelle is completely fearless of humans and her keepers have to be careful with their supplies as she is quick to reach through her enclosure and grab whatever she can get her paws on. On several occasions, we have found an entire hose pulled into her enclosure due to someone leaving it out.
Common to northern Nevada, coyotes primarily build their shelters in the ground. From building burrows to new hiding places for food and toys, coyotes are constantly digging. In the wild, coyotes have been known to walk on their toes to escape detection.
