In my opinion it is a cross breed coy-wolf.

Ive seen smaller canines than that take down deer in N Idaho ganging up like wolves. Ive killed plenty in 4 states, that ain't no pure coyote --------------------

Look to me like you need to investigate further ----------

That is a HUGE coyote! Not familiar with coyote-wolf crossbreeds. Would like to here more. I've seen packs of 6+ coyotes that are not near that size running down deer in IA.

My first thought looking at the smaller size nose/mouth was coyote. But until now I did not know that coy-wolves even existed. It does have a big body.

Now that you've got us all interested I think you need to drill a few bullets through it and have your biologist buddy test it. If it turns out to be a coy-wolf that would sure be a cool fur to have hanging on your wall.

Anything less than overkill is underachievement!

Its just a big male coyote. Not all faces on coyotes look the same. In the link below, I killed a big male coyote that is as big or bigger than the one shown above. If they have been gorging on a good amount of dead animals, they get pretty huge.
