This canine recently captured on a game camera appears a bit larger and darker in coloration than the average coastal Coyote? My friend, Chester Moore, the Executive Editor for Texas Fish & Game Magazine, agrees with me. Like myself, Chester is intrigued by wild canines, and does not believe the red wolf genes are completely extinct on the Texas coast. He feels this animal shows a lot of the wolf characteristics, which would make it at least a hybrid with coyotes, if not a full wolf.
Of course, if this particular critter continues to study deer stands after “the season” opens, HE may well be “extinct” soon!
