A few weeks ago I blogged that a Missouri hunter shot what was thought to be a wolf in the northern part of the state on Nov. 13.
The photos sure looked like a wolf and the thing was far larger than the average Missouri coyote. But that’s what it was, a coyote.
A very, very big coyote. Click here to read an update from the K.C. Star.
It happens in the wild. Every so often you come across the whitetail doe or male fox squirrel that’s the equivalent of the 400-pound woman or 100-pound adult man.
Still, wolves in northern Missouri and other midwestern states is far from impossible thanks to expanding populations in the northern Rocky Mountains and Great Lakes region.
