Golfers at an Arizona course had a rather unusual wildlife encounter last weekend. According to AZ Central, four men golfing at Scottsdale’s Talking Stick Golf Club were approached by a coyote.

The men could see that the coyote was in need of help, and possibly injured – rather than ignoring the animal’s plight, the men offered him a cup of water. One of the men, Ryan Taplin, made a Facebook post about the incredible encounter.

A once in a life time experience.

Found this coyote injured and in need of food and water today. Out on the front 9 at Talking Stick Golf Club, we noticed him stalking an animal. When he realized we were watching, he came right up to our cart. It’s crazy how gentle a wild animal can be when in need of help…Poor little guy.

The men’s act of kindness has not stopped at the cup of water – now they are trying to contact local wildlife authorities to get “Wiley” the help that he obviously needs.

  1. They got lucky…he could have been rabid. I’m glad they gave him water, but Game and Fish will probably kill him rather than trap/relocate him. I hope he made his way to safety.

  2. It’s so good to read a good story like this. Thumbs up to the kind golfers for doing a great thing for the coyote. The entire world needs to read more stories like this.
