There is no Polish coat of arms with Wilk as its crest-name, however there were nobles amongst bearers of the Wilk surname entitled to use the Radwan coat of arms.

The Wilk coat of arms is a wolf holding a rose posed like a medevil lion with a blue background

According to available armorial resources, there are five coats od arms whose crest-name incorporates the "wilk" root: WILCZE ZĘBY (3 wolf fangs), WILCZEK (sword-wielding lion), WILCZEWSKI (3 spearheads), WILKANIEC (wolf profile beneath Lubicz heraldic emblem) and WILKOWIC (wolf on shield and in crest).

If you insist there is a WILK c-o-a depicting a wolf holding a rose, then maybe it is of non-Polish origin.

This is not the Polish Klos c-o-a. This is what it really looks like:

It looks rather cluttered as it combines Korwin (raven) with Odrowąż (arrow-impaled moustache), Poraj (rosettes) and Leliwa (crescent & star) on a blue shield.
The allegdly Klos c-o-a depicting a lion seems to be the concoction of a commercial heraldry outfit which comes up with pseudo-heraldic devices for every enquirer so as not to lose a customer.

Okay since everyone else is asking, is there any for "Los"? Possibly spelt £os?

Indeed. There were three separate noble lines amongst the Family £oś (which incidentally means elk), each entitled to use the £uk, Zagłoba or Dąbrowa c-o-a.

Hmmm....Polonius, you wouldn't happen to have any links for those last three? I tried going wiki way and man did I get lost. I did locate something that said the Los name was given a title of 'Count' but I didn't quite understand how it was transferred or if it could. Thanks.

Unfortunately this source lists only the Dąbrowa c-o-a for the surname £oś. Click on Polish or English, type the name into the box, hit enter and then click on £oś to see the Dąbrowa heraldic device. The Remaining two are shown for £oś in a hard-copy armorial I've got. Online resources are less extensive. But you can click on the letters to see what £uk and Zagłoba look like.
