Looks like one of them Chihuahua/Wolf hybrids to me

Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn’t been seen in Montana since the Ice Age?

On May 16 a lone wolf-like animal was shot and killed on a ranch outside Denton. With long grayish fur, a large head and an extended snout, the animal shared many of the same characteristics as a wolf; but its ears were too large, it’s legs and body too short, its fur uncharacteristic of that common to a wolf.

So what was it? At this point, no one is 100 percent sure.

    My guess is DNA Testing will show Wolf/Dog Hybrid… Here in the Virginia Piedmont we shoot Coyotes that have noticeable Dog-Like Features fairly often, and though they are less common, see small Packs of Feral Dogs – Everyone considers them far more Dangerous than Coyotes, because they are less Afraid to approach People and Domestic Animals.

      Looks like a scruffy terv to me to. I trapped wolves for study in the late 1990’s ( I have a bachelors in wildlife biology) I caught 2 wolves one weighed 78 lbs and the other about a 104 lbs. this is either a wolf shedding its winter coat late Or a wolf dog Hybrid

    Probably a wolf-dog cross. We also get coyote-dog crosses, but they’re rare. What we are getting around the Ohio / Michigan border is Moonbat Migration! Okay, wait.

    We’re seeing Wolf-Coyote hybrids. Instead of a 40 pound coyote on the no season list, we’re seeing an 80 pound coyote that might be a wolf. Wolves are on the endangered species list. The problem is that not everyone understands the concept of shoot, shovel, shut up.
