Re: 104 Pound Coyote

One of the WI outdoor publications just had an article in it about a wolf trapped in south east MN. Seems there had been a few unconfirmed sightings in southern MN farm country.

Now there DNR can not deny it. It was a WI wolf confirmed by a DNA sample taken during it's release.

Who can blame them wolves for moving south.

It's damm cold here right now.

Re: 104 Pound Coyote

Looks like a half breed to me? I'm no wolf or Cotyote expert like the trapper dude that posted, but it looks like it has some Coyote color in the mid-hind area, but like a Husky (or Wolf) in the head and over all size.
What ever it is, it looks much better now!!

looks like a coydog. They're getting to be fairly common in the midwest now, and have seen many that would scale well over seventy pounds.

I would say it was bigfoot before I'd say coyote. Let big brother tell you what he wants you to hear.

We DNA tested it and it is most definitely a giraffe.

Re: 104 Pound Coyote

Well if it's like the DNR here in MI. They would tell you it was a geraffe rather than a Wolf. They say there are no Wolves in lower, only the U.P. I have friends that are Hunters, that have property in the mid to upper part of the lower peninsula, and they sware that thay have seen them, period? One said they saw a Big Cat too? Said it ran across the highway (2 lane) right in front of their truck? They said they have seen several Bob Cats over the years, and this was no Bob. The Government is going to blow smoke up our A$$es about anything they see fit. This is one of those times, and subjects. Did the article say if the hunter kept the Coyote/ Wolf?

Also since coyotes have been known to cross with dom. dogs and people cross dom. dogs with wolfs i think it is very plausible to assume wolfs could crossbred with coyotes
