I was told NY State didn't have coyotes in the 1960's. Is this a wolf or a coyote?

Coyote. I've never seen any wolf that would be that small at a time of year with snow on the ground

I agree with Ken it's a coyote in his left hand.

Thorpe told me there were places that held brush wolves/ coyotes in the Adirondack's that were never cleaned out, they had always been there. Pa. had populations of coyotes in the 60's and 70's, scattered and probably thin but here none the less.

Coyote...or else those are REALLY long reds in his other hand.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

There is brush wolves/coyote all over New England and NY and over the whole area now, the brush wolves was not clean out. They where there to stay. When I had trap in MA the coyotes I got was 60lbs each .The one I sold them to said they where brush wolves , but the state call them coyotes since wolves can not be trap. So it is just a strain of coyote. Just not the true coyote like in the south west of the country .

Interesting. Yes I guess that does make sense, to measure the red foxes against it. We'll I guess there were coyotes in NY then.

E.J. Dailey talked about trapping “brush wolves” back in his day.

I think what made me ask originally were two things...

1.) I had been told by multiple people NYS had no coyotes. I understand it did now, and even those who told me probably just meant, "basically none."

2.) The animal in the picture looked very "fat" to me. Whatever that meant, I just thought I would ask. I understand, it's small.
