Melanistic Coyote (Red Wolf??)

Reply
 
Trail cam photos were taken in Vermilion Parish in 2015. Appears to be larger than a coyote, clearly darker, and snout seems much wider than a typical coyote. Surrounding area is marsh I.e. (Roseau cane, needle grass, three corner grass). Spoil banks supporting tree growth, mainly Chinese tallow, can also be found in the area. Anyone else with any similar pictures? Coyote, red wolf, or coydog?

My vote would be coydog.

LDWF Biologist says just a coyote. I’m no coyote expert, but this canine doesn’t seem to be pure coyote.
