Apparently they thought it would be a good idea to walk their malamute without a leash in the mountains during the deer hunt. I can only imagine their faces if I had squeezed the round off.
I would have paid good money to see that one!!

    That sure looks like a Grey Wolf and not like a Coyote .
    Might be a pet , it does seem unconcerned but maybe it's never been shot at.
    I've never seen either in the wild but it sure looks like a Wolf to me.

    Looks like a job for a dichotomous key. There truly is no worse hell-forged object than a broad dichotomous key.

    Only way to tell is shoot it and drop it off at the nearest fed building at 2:00 am.
