This animal was MASSIVE! Started following us at the pole line in Three Ponds so we walked out onto the golf course greens for safety so we could get back to the road & our car. In all my time living in the USA I've never once seen a coyote as big as this one. He was larger than the biggest of our 3 dogs who were with us (she's a 60lb Australian Shep. mix). Tall on the legs, & either really well fed or just super fluffy by the looks of him. I would easily compare the size of this animal with that of my dad's female German Shepherd who's 80lbs+. Even managed to get pictures of it's paw prints as it ran over a sand trap on the golf course. Sorry the images aren't very sharp, they were taken with our cell phones.

what a sighting and lots of photos!!!!!!!!!! huge paw prints. Excellent narrative. this is one brute of an animal.!!!! I think it is a wolf, or at least a cross breed.

Sure looks like a large animal according to the photo with gloves. I see a lot of tracks here on the beaches at Lumsden but none of this size. I have had the pleasure of seeing three so far and they were small animals and very shy, i.e. they always went away from me asap.
