If they are coyotes, then they have some sort of disease that was at same stage of advancement. Too similar.
Perhaps some mutated coyote...
I raise animals and occasionally get a strain with odd trait that is genetically passed on to its progeny.
I was watching one of the able channels a couple months ago and they found one very similar to these two.
One would think they could check DNA to determine if they are coyotes or domestic dog or a new species.
