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.
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.
