See the resemblance now.

Someone with WDFW must have picked it up in a truck and moved it to Snohomish county. Couldn't possibly have walked that far all on it's own.

Tough to tell if its a wolf or dog.  Probably worth reporting.

The coyote and black dog both look pretty well fed.

Straight up wolf.  :bash:

Obviously wet side, what county?
Snohomish.

What Drainage?

I saw tracks up above the North Fork of the Sauk almost 20 years ago during the middle of winter.

One way to find out is to shoot it as a coyote then have the DNA checked out.

Sort of like saying shoot a mountain lion and check later to see if it's a bobcat?

2 weeks have gone by and I decided to go up and take a look.

To give a little back ground on this whole thing let me quickly explain the situation for you all.
My daughter has been shooting bow for two years now. She showed a strong interest in going hunting with me and has progressed to the point in strength and accuracy that we set 2018 as her inaugural season.
I spent much of free-time in the last year scouting through the mountains looking for just the right set-up for her.
I finally found the spot that would work.
It has terrain she can handle with a natural blind over looking an active area.
Best of all is that it had a beauty of a resident buck. I crossed my fingers that the buck would make it through this years hunting season and supplemented his diet for maximum health and antler growth. Luck held and he made it through.
Every three to four weeks I went up and changed out trail cam batteries and brought my daughter along to get used to the area and to practice moving through the forest quietly and efficiently.
Then, this predator showed up on camera. It had me pretty worried and I decided to go on up and check the camera to see if it was going to hang around or keep migrating out of the area. What I found just 15 feet away from The trail cam was a hard hit.
The camera had 1200 images over the course of two days that started within hours of our leaving the last time we were up there but, the action that was triggering the cam was just out of frame on every single one of them.
I'm adding the pics that I took with my phone of what I found  left of the buck.
I can't prove what killed him as it may have just been coincidence, but in my mind it seems to great a coincidence.

Sorry to see that has spoiled your plans, but I would say that that was an invaluable hunting experience, nonetheless.

Years ago around JBLM I kept encountering an animal that looked almost German Shepard and a wolf.  Wild life management on Fort Lewis could not give me a straight answer. Then I heard about people in Pierce County that were raising hybrids as a hobby. Just a thought.

growing up we had a half wolf/half German sheeperd that would routinely fight coyotes. one night we hear him going at it and dad puts the spotlight on him and we couldn't tell him from the other.  turns out dnr had released a few wolves to take care of the deer that were eating the trees they had the inmates plant. this was around 2002 in Lewis county

Well, I question the part about DNR releasing wolves. I seriously doubt that info got told or heard correctly. DNR would not do that.

It's a big enough stretch  to believe that WDFW has tranported and released wolves (I don't believe that for a second but can see why some may believe it with wdfw) but it seriously is laughable to believe DNR would have used wolves to reduce the deer population.  No way would they have done that.

 :sry: but it's just really not something that the Department of Natural Resources would have done.

I've heard stories of Weyerhaeuser dropping off wolves. While I don't buy into that story either, it is at least something that isn't beyond belief. :twocents:
