Looks like a wolf, though the color is uncommon it is found occasionally.  Certainly a "wolf-like" canid, possibilities include wild wolf, escaped captive wolf or wolf hybrid, or a very wolfy domestic dog.

What county?
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

They will call it a dog till you shoot it (because they are liars and thieves)  :yike:  :yike:  :yike:. Then if they catch you, they will collect thousands of dollars from you and you will be on the evening news.  >:(

We saw one about that color running with a big black wolf a few days ago, so I don't know how uncommon the lighter colors are.

I thought it was a bit light for this part of the country but I've never seen one in the wild so what do I know. Definitely not happy with how quickly Wdfw dismissed it. They must know something we don't.

Me and the ol' man seen a pretty pale wolf north of Empire Creek(Curlew) about 6-7 years ago looking down a rock cliff at us. Very light, light grey colored. Maybe not quit as light as this subject. I can see this being close to a white Shepard as well, but the face doesn't fit a dog, more wolf.

If it is killing in your neighborhood I would say hybrid.  Been seeing it for a while?  If it was a one time deal, wolf makes the most sense.

Well, there's wolves in Darrington, so it's not unreasonable to think they would be in Sultan.

I remember a pic of a bunch of white wolf looking K9's along a river, a river that looked very much like that one

anyone else remember that?  A whole pack with pups


If I had to guess it was "dog" that's mostly wolf advertised off craigslist.

That was the skagit river I do believe. This pic looks like a flooded field.

Not a huge distance away for a wolf could be part of same pack. Wouldn't doubt it that Wdfw lied about that pack either.
