    Are those fence rails behind it ?
    If it is are they 24 or more inches high ?
    Less fox more coyote.
    Looks to be fox

    I would say a fox. The tail looks too bushy and it looks too small for any coyote we have around here.

    Fox, tail and ear markings give it away

    I am pretty sure it's a fox but my husband and SIL said "coyote" when they saw the pictures. The fence behind him is 5 feet tall, but the perspective is weird, I think.
