me thinks that is a female wolf. Paws seem too big for a coyote. Coyote nose I think is longer/skinnier.

Do they have Coywolves there I wonder? https://www.google.com/search?q=Coywolv ... O_gBP5p4FM:

I checked several photo's of coyotes vs wolves, and, I pretty sure, we've got a well fed coyote. Slim snout and pointed ears for me are the key.

Speaking of shoddy news. CHBC on Thursday evening, I lost it. Story about a young fellow getting into the rodeo sport. Did some riding and helped out distracting bulls after riders were thrown, got hurt (not dressed as a clown).

Continuing heading and verbal description throughout the piece called the event "bull fighting". Where do they get these people !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Strikes me as quite tall for a coyote, at least compared to the ones around my last residence.

Going by the above I'd say it's a wolf.

It's a younger female wolf. Ears are too round, muzzle too wide, and colour isn't right for a coyote. Also, look at the size of those mitts. Coyotes have smaller, almost dainty feet in comparison.
