Found this coyote marking its territory one night while taking a drive. It stopped many times along the way to scratch itself. It must of had flees pretty bad. Its territoy was pretty pathetic only an acre or two surrounded by three roads. It could care less that I was there filming it and went on about its bussiness.

Excuse me but that animal is a Fox. It has black paws and a white tail tip. Plus the head is fox shaped not coyote shaped. They are very different!!!!!

Really a fox? It looked like its paws were just dirty to me it was raining. I swore it was a coyote with mange.

If you look through this forum of "The Hunters" I posted pictures of a red fox from last June. In the thread "Look who's looking for diner" you can see the coloring and ear shape and nose shape easily. Foxes are also much smaller than coyotes being only 10 to 12 pounds. Coyotes are usually 30# or larger and their feet are quite large for their size. Unless it is a rare all black animal they do not have black paws. I have never seen a coyote with a white tail tip either. Could happen but Foxes always have one.

I'd have to say fox, because it doesn't look anything like a coyote. Except for a few rare phenotypes, red fox always have a white tip on their tail-coyotes do not. Might have mange, but foxes tend to 'blow' their coats in the spring, so its hard to say. My foxes and coyotes look so rough this time of year, I don't let anyone take pictures of them! Smile

I took this video in September or October. It looked about the same size as my lab so I figured it must of been a coyote.
