    It certainly looks like a hybrid. Too bad it doesn't show a person standing next to it for comparative purposes.

    The shape of the head, and especially the muzzle, just didn't look right for a yote, that's why I am convinced it is a hybrid.

    I would think it more likely its a large breed domestic dog/coyote hybrid. I could be wrong but I have a hard time seeing a wolf mating with a coyote.
    But it sure doesnt look like a normal song dog, thats for sure.

    You have a point. Wolves will usually try to drive coyotes out of their range. Or, it could have been a wolf that swings both ways. ;)

    Red wolves are a coyote wolf hybrid. Wolves will not normally mate with coyotes, but it has happened. I imagine male wolves are a bit like some of the guys I knew in the service.

    That is not a coyote.

    I think that they just don't want to admit the god damn wolves are moving out into the flat land....I say shoot some more 104 pound coyotes, Idaho and Montana got lots to be shot.

    I shot a coyote just like that across the road from my house. I know it is a coyoe because there are no wolves in WA State!:bluelaugh:

    Wolves kill coyotes whenever possible. I trapped in MO for several years and caught many foxes and coyotes. That's NOT a coyote. The coat says domestic dog, not wild dog. The muzzle is definitely wild dog. It is most likely a domestic dog/coyote cross, which would explain the size.

    From the first article:

    Um, tell that to my bluetick coonhounds. They don't seem to understand that the coyotes are the ones that are supposed to do the killing and that the hounds are supposed to be the ones to run away.

    I have to give the guy credit, I would have completed the final 2 or the three S's if I thought I shot a Wolf.

    I thought the same thing! Not sure I would have been so forthcoming. He is just lucky the DNA came back the way it did, or his pocket book would be lighter while his criminal record would be heavier.
