    I am no expert but it does not look like the coyote that I saw yesterday.

    It's quick whatever it is! I think it could be a coyote. Looks too light for a fox to me.

    I'm unsure if this will help, but we found this pile of um feces not too far from where the camera took the pic... looks like primarily dines on a feast of rabbit (judging from the fur in the feces)

    Coyote fer me too. Even blurry a fox would have a more prevalent tail relative to the body. Could be a feral dog of some sort, but I'd put a buck on coyote. Around our place, a Coyote or coon near the coop is known as "a future hat."

    its a fox Typically Most of your Coyotes will run with there tails down just the opposite as the White tail deer both native to the red dirt wheat pastures of Oklahoma.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    And your foxes run with there tails up in the air you Sir have a fox.

    Tell ya what the OP is from Ohio So to make this fair Please Google Ohio Coyotes Click on Images Upper left corner, then find one pic where your native coyote is running with its tail up broad. Not to mention How much more bushy the Ohio Coyotes tail is. When giving advice I dont ever try to go off my experiences alone, I take the time to find out where the OP is from and search his or her breed of that animal as all animals adapt differently to different climates. out of hundreds of pics there is one pic where a coyote has his tail half cocked but it is still a big bushy mane. (this was not intended to strike at anyone just letting you know how I find valuable information.)
