Wylie the Wolf
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Wylie was a wolf who lived in the wild, wild west before the west was tamed. He lived about as far west as a wolf could get; he lived in Washington Territory. Wylie wandered about the woods and the wide-open deserts without a care in the world. That is, until one day when a wicked weasel and his gang moved into his neighborhood. Up until that time, Wylie had pretty much all the woods in this part of the northwest to himself. He never had to look far to find his next meal. He never bothered the settlers or natives stealing their chickens or their livestock. Wylie was wise enough to leave plenty of distance between him and the folks who had come by wagon train to make a new start in the Northwest.
 
2     That all changed when Wayne Weasel and his gang moved in. Wayne and his Wild Weasel gang broke into settlers' barns at night to steal chickens. They didn't care about anything; if the Weasel gang wanted it, they simply stole it. Wylie actually got blamed for some of their thievery. When that happened, Wylie decided he'd put an end to the Weasel Gang once and for all.
