    Need help identifying this track

    I put this in field photos too but thought I would put here too...

    I believe it canine and not feline. The part is I am hoping it is coyote and not the bigger cousin. Some thing to note, I found a dead elk calf on Saturday. I went back into the area today (Tuesday). The entire calf was gone. No blood, hear or anything. Like it carried off and I found this track in the mud near where the calf was.

    This was taken in South Eastern Wyoming near Arlington

    I think canine as well. If you remember, next time put a pen or something next to the track to give reference to the size.

    From the outside edge of far left and far right toes it was just wider than my four fingers. That is 3 1/4 inches. I didn't think about taking a picture with my fingers because I was kicking myself for not putting my game camera up near the calf. But you are totally right, I should have.

    It is canine. Probably a domestic/feral dog.

    You have to remember, it is in the mud so it makes the track bigger too. Especially an old track like that. I'm with the others on identification.

    I hope it is a dog. But it would have to be feral because or it was lost. This was taken 2 miles from a dead-end FS road in the middle of Medicine Bow Forest.

    Certainly canine, but much too large for a coyote, even spread out in the mud. Dog or wolf. More than likely a young wolf that has dispersed from its pack.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    Looks like a bear front paw print to me not canine and cats don't leave claw marks that I've ever seen ????
