I posted back before the fall about a Black phase coyote and I said it was huge. 10 years ago or so,in Maine a hunter shot a wolf and it got national attention and they did a DNA test on it. It turned out to be a wolf and the guy got fined like $10k I think. Well, I never really believed that what I saw cross the road 20ft in front of the truck about 7yrs ago. My buddy and I first thought it was a siberian husky, but it was longer and taller. I thought it was a wolf deep down, but figured it must have been a huge coyote from a dog/yote mix. I mean how often will anyone see a black phase yote?? I've been to Wolf Hollow in Mass and seen those wolves inches away, obviously this one wasn't fed quite as good but definetly the same size, same narrow gait, and big feet. The tail stayed straight down like'em too. I've said for years it was a coyote I saw cuz I didn't want people to think i'm nutz or something, but something that big, that color and all the characteristics of a wolf, must have been a wolf. Someone this fall on the board said they saw big tracks like a wolf up in Errol. I wonder when we'll hear some howling!!
Forgot to add...We were up between the 2nd and 3rd Connecticut Lake on RT 3 in Pittsburg NH.
