    Extinct Florida Black Wolf? Strong Case....

    Ok, sitting at work waiting for the clock so I can drive up to camp afterwords. My buddy says , "Hey, check Panther on trail cam I emailed you" last night. Ok. I open it up and see the image bellow. Not A Panther. So I look it over for awhile. Its a Dog or Black Yote, I say to myself? Then I remember the Fla. Wolf and google it up. Up pops this drawing that look "just like" the trail cam. Seems the Fla. Black wolf has been extinct since 1908...or is it....what you pros say?

    Looks like a kitty cat to me as well.
    DYING for me was the most HE could do. LIVING for HIM is the least I can do

    The body, top of back to belly seems to tall for cat and right leg seems too long for cat? Also, ears seem like a dog, not cat? And body language not cat like? Like a dog "herding"? Think its a black Yote...

    That's a coyote I think. That black wolf has been extinct since 1908!

    Opened in Picasa and did a couple of adjustments - definitely a kitty without a doubt. Posture looks completely normal and like a cat that was slinking in and was caught off guard by the sound of the camera. The size is also not even close to that of a yote or wolf.

    I think so too...black Yote with some genes from the wolf carried along all these years, rare if so i would assume...? If thats a cat, world largest Bobcat! not a panther....this is central fla....

    I don't know I enlarged it a bit and I can faintly see a snout and a bushy tail. I am sticking with a dark coyote.
