    Wolf?
    Are you sure this is a Wolf? I'm thinking it's a Huge Black Coyote? Wolfs have rounded Tip Ears and a Block snout/Nose and Coyotes have tall pointed Ears and a sharper Canine looking snout/Nose as this critter does...It does have a massive Body but I'm still thinking Huge Yote? Any other Pics? Would have been cool if you would have had camera on Video because Wolfs will hunt/Run with tails up and Coyotes hunt/Run with thier tails down....Cool Picture nonetheless

    Maybe? But I say Yote!!!
    Hard to say with 1 pic? I found this illustration and it's the same as I have always heard and was taught about the Nose and Ears?....Cool pic anyway but I'll put my money on it's a Big Yote!!!

    Yote/wolf?
    About 5 years ago I was Turkey hunting and stood up fixing to leave and heard something coming...I had been hearing a Gobbler and thought I had run out of daylight on him but then thought he was coming in so to be safe I grabbed my shotgun and I finally see what I was hearing...A Big Yote stalking my decoys...I gut-shot him as he made me out and he weighed 54 pounds!!! I thought I had killed a Wolf also lol..It was HUGE!!! but had lost it's winter Coat and was just nasty looking...I think I have a pic of it somewhere but again...I'm thinking Yote on this one!!

    Yote
    The ears and the snout definitely point to a yote. There may be some around but I just don't think this is a wolf. Google some pictures and you will see. Whether it is a wolf or a yote, they both need a bullet lol.....

    i'm with ya on the coyote, it's not a wolf, i've seen a cpl round here looks exactly the one in the above pics.black phase coyotes are around. some coyotes are the hybrids mixed with grey wolves and have migrated here. they get alot bigger than the western coyotes. no matter which kind... they are hunters and scavengers.

    Interesting. There are a lot of black coyotes in the east here, apparently. We've got 'Red Wolves' too, which I'm told are in existence with some breeding with coyotes. If that is untrue, they HAVE bred with coyotes SINCE their reintroduction in eastern NC. I came across one once, dead, with a color around its neck (a coyote). I'll look for the pic.
