The past couple of days I have found unusual wolf like footprints near my chickens and geese. I have done research and ruled out the number one predator here, coyotes. There is no way a coyote's foot can be this big! The wildlife agencies have released red wolves near here, and they say that there is a stock of about 250 running wild now. Here are some pictures. These are the first ones I saw. They was headed away from the chicken pen. And dogs are ruled out here also, their hind foot doesn't step inside the front track. Only coyotes and wolves do this. Here they are compared next to a tire track This was taken a day later, the ground had dried some This is the second ones. They was headed out of the barn where I keep my geese. I measured it. 4 inches long, 3 inches wide. I have also heard howling, not the usual yipping of coyotes. Any ideas on what you think it is? Could it be a monstrous coyote?
