    Is this a Red Wolf or Coyote? Picture taken in Granville County last week in the middle of the afternoon.

    Yote
    I would say coyote. The main reason is how rare the red wolf's are. That being said I am not ruling out the possibility of it being a red wolf. If you do a Google image search for red wolves there is definitely some similarities. Hard to say for sure though but most likely a yote...That's my opinion anyways...

    It has to be a coyote as they are killing all the Red Wolfs in the east!
    Just ask the FWS!

    I would be willing to bet its a Coyote. As Red Wolves were introduced to Poquoson Lakes National Wildlife refuge. These animals traditionally inhabit Dare, Washington, Hyde, and Washington counties.

    Other way around
    I've never heard that the coyotes are killing the wolves, but only the other way around. (People are certainly killing a few, it seems...)

    I found a dead coyote in Hyde County one day. It had a radio collar on its neck (so I assumed right away it was a wolf). We called the FWS guy who identified it as a coyote right away. Told us they are tracking those as well. He guaranteed us it was killed by a red wolf. The male wolves, after a year or so, they leave the pack and go solo for awhile. When they come back, they are raring to go (wink, wink). They've tracked a male that went full circle thru Hyde, Tyrrell, and into Washington County (outskirts of Plymouth), and then ended up at a den site - a den where a male coyote had been bedding a female wolf. They found the coyote dead near that site, and the wolf in residence.

    (I have pics of said coyote).
