    As I used to say when I worked with the DOW. Yep thats a large canine, say goodbye to your elk... Luckily for the most cases, if it was a single you got nothing to be worried about a roaming male looking for other packs, if you have multiples large canines all's I can says is if you see one gut punch it..

    The lack of two interdigital lobes on the pad is enough to rule out cat. The presence of a single interdigital lobe rules out bear. The pads of bear tracks are more crescent shaped. Since the interdigital lobe on the pad lacks dimples on the sides, you can be almost certain it isn't a wolf. Plus to be wolf or coyote, the entire shape of the track would be longer where as this track is fairly round. Without any doubt in my mind, gentlemen, we are looking at a domestic canid track.

    Canine.....doubt if it's a wolf. Most likely feral dog. Diffidently not a cat or bear.
