Wolf Killed in Missouri?

Is it a wolf, coyote or hybrid?
Check it out:

A hunter in Missouri has taken would could be a record-sized coyote.

Or it might be a wolf. Or it might even be a wolf-coyote hybrid.

No one is exactly sure what the animal is, which is why the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) plans on conducting DNA testing on the animal to determine its species.

The animal was shot in Wayne County by a landowner last month. Once the hunter saw up close just how large the “coyote” was, he thought the animal could be a wolf so he contacted the MDC to surrender the animal as wolves are a protected species in Missouri.
