Loc: Montague County / San Antonio
I was out at my ranch this weekend (southern Montague County) and came across this animal while driving around at sunset. We don't have many neighbors and they certainly do not have dogs. It froze just long enough for me to snap a blurry photo and then darted away from me into the bushes. Need some help identifying. I have some observations but I want to see what the experts think.

Thanks!

Coydog? I have never actually seen one so it's just a guess on my part.

Could be a coydog, this is out there a bit, I am certainly no expert but I have seen wolves that look a lot like that.

Looks like a large, long legged coyote to me. Also the right posture and angle to make it look bigger I believe. Has a very rich coat, fur buyers would probably love it.

Most likely a yote. Does have some pretty dark markings so could have a bit of dog/yote mix.

The black tip of the tail says coyote to me.
