Tom Lewis, who was the biologist over the wolf program, was killed in a plane crash last year. Because of that I didn't have a contact at SVI. I went by the office on Scipio Creek and got the name of the bio-tech that is still on the program, and I've sent him the pictures.I'll post his thoughts.

Heard from the biologist at St Vincent and 2 from the ANERR and all agree that it's a coyote. As I said before the reason I questioned it's lineage was the bulk of it's front in...I guess sea food & cats suits it well!

Thanks Ron for getting the information. Cool pics too. I had not heard about the plane crash, I am sorry to hear it.

Coy dogs are more less not.
I have seen coyotes with that coat color. Such phases remind me of a Akita.

Confirmation appears to be a coyote.

One would have thought it would have left before being roughed up like that! At least it appears the fur it's ruffled on it's back

My guess would be a melanistic coyote. One was killed down here in Texas a few years ago. Melanism is pretty well documented in many mammals (Black Jaguars AKA Black Panthers) although, you don't hear too many coyotes having it which would make it a very cool find. Another pigment issue is Leucism which is almost the opposite of melanism (complete opposite would be albino) I've seen several times in the wild. I shot these photos of a leucistic Red Tailed Hawk last year:

and

If it is a Melanistic coyote, I'm betting the local F&G would be interested in the find; it's pretty dang cool.
