So I'm interested in your opinion of this picture.  Do you think these are wolves, coyotes, or some kind of hybrid.

 

I know that where I live here in Alaska we have all of the above choices.

I work with Photoshop more than your average Joe and was immediately skeptical of the proportions of that dog and that car. Either that's a mammoth dog or a smallish car. If the image is photoshopped it was a masterful job and I'm jealous of the artwork.

 

If not,  I'm jealous of anybody who owns a wolf sanctuary. You should let Juthro and I volunteer for a week on the sanctuary. Speaking only for myself I'd take payment in photo opportunities.

I can't really tell from the photo, my first instinct is coyote, but there is such a thing as a Coyo-wolf they are a big larger than regular coyotes and smaller than wolves but from memory these are mostly Canada, eastern US. Pheno-typing is a science and I am just a self taught amateur.. but the thinness of the snout makes think these aren't young wolves.

No photoshop, you are getting a little of the telephoto size change.. but she is the same wolf as in the forest photo I posted in another section... if you are local no problem on photo sessions... other than you are warned they steal everything <eg>

Wolves are one of the most social animals there is, I tell everyone I know "YOU DO NOT WANT A WOLF" they will chew everything in your house, back hoe, water pipes, molding on your car and on and on... I came home to 77K yes 77,000$ in damage 15 years ago I was gone for 18 hours and they were chasing a mouse under the sick and chewed the water lines and it flooded my house...  I have tons of You don't want a wolf videos... 

 

latest one is the leather couch...  :angry: \

 

This morning the pup figured out how to get into my Sled river boat and did 1500$ in damage chewing seats and wiring... they are pups for 2 good years and start slowing down about 3 to 5 years old.

I had a friend who had one wolf that was great for him, though not really great for quite a few other people.   It was one very dangerous canine.  When it got pretty old, he got a second one, as the first one's days were obviously numbered.  The second one had habits much as WolfWhiz describes above, and after a few years of dealing with this, he had to give up on his wolf number two.   She was just way too much trouble.   Then a mutual friend also got a wolf (or wolf hybrid -- it showed up on his porch in Portland -- so the lineage was unknown) and when I last saw him, he still had her, though she could never be left untied. 

 

One time a local forest creature made the mistake of getting too close to her lead, at a time when I was unfortunately babysitting her.  While I had dealt with this same situation with dogs in the past, this one had to go to the vet and be anesthetized, as I sure wasn't going to attempt any remedy.

As much as it's possible to photograph the living shit out of your place and not compromise identity or location I'd love to see more of the preserve
