    I'm not gonna read through multiple pages of this thread. Too silly to.

    Anyway, yes there are claw marks. It is either a large dog or a wolf. Same species, no way to tell them apart by the print. Could include coyote, but this is bigger than typical coyote. Print is fresh/crisp enough and not expanded from melt.

    Is that one of your little puppy's hands or did you shoot a bear this fall?

    I saw a bobcat track on my walk today. Just one single track. It was headed across the road and only one track was visible. I didn't have a camera and it warmed up enough today to distort the image. I'll get some wolf tracks for you guys after the next snow.

    Timely thread. If you look closely you may see wolf tracks in this picture. Or not.

    The neighbor's son just sent this to me. This little buck has been going thru my yard just about every morning for 2 months. I catch him between 4 and 5 AM each day. No more I guess...

    Look at the part of the track that is closest to the upside down word "AMERICA". The last A is pointing to a claw mark. Other claw marks are visible too, but that one stands out more.

    I live in rural Upstate NY and hunt and cross-country ski, and have a GSD, and bear and bobcat and coyote and fox and raccoon. With the coyote, many are mixed with Canadian Timber Wolf (not dog hybrid), as verified by NYDEC. I also have game cameras and binoculars and spotting scopes, and a big pasture they all like to cross, between woods and food sources (including good rabbit habitat, as well as some nearby livestock). So I've seen a lot of animals and their tracks.

    I did go back and read all the posts in this thread for a laugh :)

    If you look at Bren's graphic you will see that the x on the canine track intersects in front of the rear pad.
    If you use the same pattern and draw an x on the cat track the x will intersect in the rear pad.
    That's a quick and easy way to differentiate between a cat and dog track.

    They look like the paw prints Pork Chop leaves when he tracks in mud on my white tile floor.
