They both looked so sad with their little bodies covered in the crusts and sores caused by the mange. They also suffered from malnourishment and where very underweight and stunted in growth.
The second guy needed his front leg splinted as well as treatment for mange.
I am proud to say that they never got used to humans and even when I had to enter their enclosure to feed them it stressed them out a lot.
After several months recovering and growing today it was the day they where finally ready to return home. With the help of Chris (one of the great volunteers here) we loaded the coyotes into crates. This is no easy task. These coyotes are lightning fast and have a solid bite. Both Chris and myself wore protective gear to prevent bites.
Both coyotes where taken back to the approx location they where found in the hope they will reconnect with their families and released.
I am happy to have been able to assist these little guys in their recovery and wish them both a great life...
