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.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

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.

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.
