    I found these behind my coop this morning, I don't have chickens in their yet, but I just got to calves that are next to the coop, they are huge prints. We thought maybe a wolf, but wasn't sure.[​IMG]

    I would say wolf. Canine definintly. If it was a big cat you would see the toenails.

    Thats either a wolf or a big dog. Too big to be a coyote.

    Did you measure it? The actual size could make a difference.
