    I know this is a poor quality picture, but can anyone identify this animal? I was thinking a coyote, but the more I look at it I am not sure as a it looks a little feline to me also. MDGC0029.jpg

    Thanks! I think we have a consensus winner on yote. I was not sure at first and started seeing something that apparently was not there.

    Where this camera is located the nearby river rose between 3-4' by Monday and had receeded around a foot overnight by the time I retrieved the camera today. The area received around 3-3.5" rain between Saturday and Sunday AM. I typically do not keep my cameras out in the this area too long as many people fish the shores of this little river. I placed it there Friday knowing that it was supposed to thunderstorm over the weekend and there would be very little foot traffic.
