Amazing Coywolf pictures!

Check out these pics! This fellow was behind the school in a field on Wednesday at 3:17pm. We are all pretty sure he is a Coywolf. A Coywolf is a gray wolf-coyote hybrid. 

We live in rural southeast Wisconsin in farm country. There has been much talk about the spotting of Coy-wolves in our area. 

One of the markings of a Coywolf is the wolf like tail. This animal definitely has all of the markings of a Coywolf. I was able to find a website with some great info on the Coywolf. Check out Coywolf.org ~ click HERE





Amazing pics! So beautiful but 
then so scary!
The school is aware and they are taking precautions to ensure the safety of the children. All will be fine with the kids. All children are taking home notices about the discovery and the community leaders are aware making sure to notify everyone in the area. 

We all know if we see one - who knows how many more are in the area.

About two months ago I was driving down the road and all of a sudden a turkey sat right in the middle of the road. I stopped and then a dog like animal ran so fast across the road it was a blur.  Once the dog like animal crossed the road the turkey got up and went the other way. I assumed the turkey used the road and traffic as a protector against the animal chasing him. I bet that animal was also a Coywolf - it looked much like these pictures. 

Have you ever seen a Coywolf in person?

  7. We have Coydogs in Maine...they look really similair to the Coywolf...maybe the same? They can be very scary here and tend to make small dogs and cats disappear! These are great photos!
