Re: 104 Pound Coyote

I'll believe it when:

  1. It is confirmed that the DNA test was done by an independent laboratory and
  2. That the confirmation was conducted by the lab as a normally performed test
  3. not as an after hours, 'on the side' test by 'one of the techs' who needed some experience.
  4. etc.
The pic is not sufficiently comprehensive to show that the animal is a scaled up yote. There are some features that beg explanation.
  • ears
  • eyes
  • muzzle
  • canines
  • general shape of mouth.
My knee jirk observations.

That looks like a wolf pup. Face looks just like a wolf. I have a real hard time believing there are 104 pound coyotes out there. Though maybe this is the chupacabra.

Re: 104 Pound Coyote

My thought exactly. I was born and raised in southern Iowa about 150 miles from where this thing was killed. I remember once a good friend of mine killed a female that weighed over 90 pounds. The DNR told us the same story. Big yote. Of course we also were told there were NO big cats in Iowa. That is until one of my friends shot one.

Re: 104 Pound Coyote

i'm thinking probably a hybrid of some sort, not full coyote.

Re: 104 Pound Coyote

We need the name and phone number of that independent lab - could be useful for future information in case anybody in Mt., Wy. or Idaho needs their services.
