The Wolf in the Living Room

The Internet Meme, at top, is a joke, but there's an interesting story behind it.

It seems back in 2014, an 8-year old girl in Wisconsin had a wild-caught coyote as a pet.

The coyote, acquired as a very small pup after a hunter shot its mother, lives in a pen on the farm and it dens underground, but it is in and out of the house frequently enough that has adapted to life as a kind of dog, sitting by the fire in the winter, going for walks on a leash, sitting on the couch, and even playing fetch with a tennis ball.
