Nancy J. Smith first noticed her coyote’s peculiar behavior during an educational visit to Naples Park Elementary School several years ago. Smith, the founder and president of Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Golden Gate Estates, a refuge for abandoned and neglected wolves, coyotes and other wildlife, brought along Amaya, a now 9-year-old coyote-dog mix. Because of Amaya’s good disposition, Smith wanted to use her to teach the children about wolves, coyotes and the importance of good stewardship in protecting and caring for these animals.
