Identify this dog
« on: December 28, 2017, 10:24:00 PM »
I checked my cam today and got some great pics.
Nice buck, a cougar, awesome bobcat, some coyote, and another dog.
The first pic is one of the coyotes and the second pic is the best of four pics I got of it.
I am positive it is not a domestic dog.

It doesn’t look big enough to be a wolf.  His head looks domesticated.  Looking at the coyote and the dog’s positions to the logs, I think it is domesticated,.  That said, I’m no expert, just my $.02

Another shot. Not very good quality though.

I agree, wolf.  The tail is carried like a wolf, low with no curl, and it is much larger than the coyote.  >:(

I have heard several accounts of folks seeing black wolves out on Green Mt. and surrounding hills in Snohomish County. No evidence that I've seen, just stories. One account from a LEO. Good catch on the cam.

My wife and mother described a black wolf they saw on 2 seperate occasions at Lake Cavanaugh which is near the border of  Snohomish county.
It's been rumored that the Local Bio is trying to track down a pack near Darrington.

After the first pic I would have put money on it being a domestic dog. That short snout and the head in general did not seem wolf like. The 2nd pic has me at least wondering.

I think it's a young wolf, because of the attributes you have listed above.  Also, the size of the body doesn't look huge, compared to the coyote.

If you aint hunting, you aint livin'

Coywolves are legal to shoot.

That black one is Bill The Fawn Destroyer. He doesnt like labels such as wolf or menace. He likes running in packs, peeing on things,  eating animals with faces, and is prone to howls after drinking from tge beaver pond. Bill comes from a very well ofg family and is protected and sheltered even when caught misbehaving. He is looked upon often with great jealously by his cousin Wile E. Coyote since Wile can't get a break. He wants to eat just one pesky bird and gets blown up, attached to rockets, and smashed by anvils for just being himself.
