Our buddies at LouisianaSportsman.com had this trail camera photo posted to their site earlier this month. The shot was taken about three miles east of Toledo Bend lake in Louisiana.
Immediately readers guessed the strange-looking creature was a hyena, a chupacabra, or a coy dog. I was almost certain it was a new genetically modified species created by the government.
Patrick Bonin forwarded the photo to Dr. Jim LaCour of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries who decided the specimen was in fact a mangy coyote.
