I don’t know the original source of this photo, but it appears to be of a coyote or coydog in the West. If this is a wild coyote or coydog, then this would be evidence of hybridization between dogs and coyotes outside the East. My initial source said it was in California.
If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate it.
Update (3 September 2016): This animal was photographed in Baja California, which is in Mexico. There isn’t much written about coyote hybrids outside of the US and Canada, but it is assumed that they do happen in Mexico and Central America. Pre-Columbian civilizations in Mexico did cross coyotes. dogs, and Mexican wolves in their menageries.
