Need some detective work on this pic. You might remember this pic from RobNHood in Missouri. He said it was a bobcat and I put it up as that. A buddy (Shane), got to looking at the pic and he thinks it's a coyote by the ears, tail and dog looking feet. Since the animal view is going away the tail length is hard to tell. Wud ya think?

I too think it's a coyote.  The tail looks to bushy and the color pattern is more like a coyote than a bobcat.    If you look close at the head you can see his snout pointed down and a bobcat has no snout. Also if you look close at the tail it looks as if it is curled upward and is long.   Just my two cents worth.

I'd have to vote for coyote too - based on the snout.  Could be a pet dog - does not seem to have the right proportions for a coyote, but that could be the odd camera angle.

After looking more closely I believe maybe a coyote or dog. But those ears.....?

As soon as I looked at it I said coyote all for the same reasons as Camo Man pointed out.  The angle of the shot is quartering away making the animal look shorter than it actually is.  Same with the tail.  I'm not a betting man but I'd put something on this one.

My vote is for something from the canine species.  The first time I saw it I couldn't see how it could be a bobcat with seeing the snout, but I thought maybe it was just an error.
