I'm guessing beaver (Coyote for scale). Thoughts?

He's got that kinda "humpback" gait of a 'coon, but it's hard to tell. Beavers tend to have a more more rolling gait. Is the video taken near a "beaver friendly" body of water?

Creek is ~120 yards at the camera six. Feeder is camera right which would interest the coon. Here is a vid of a beaver walking. https://youtu.be/CIOrLyL9duU

Coatimundi? I'm hearing about more sightings all over the state in recent years. I've only seen one and had to look it up to verify ID.
