Anyone hear of the wolf shot last fall in Sabillasville??I went to pick up a deer mount from my taxidermist and saw the mount of the wolf myself.
There were two wolves running together with many sightings of the two in the Cuttingham Falls area.One was a darker color and the other a lighter shade,the darker one was shot.Md. DNR was called shortly after the wolf was taken and was confirmed as a wolf??

That's the story I was told...Anyone hear anything about it??

I saw a wolf or coydoie (Spelling?)  on the side of the road eating roadkill just before the baybride on the easternshore side last week.   + there was a linx at the farm in Unionville i hunt last year.  dont know what happened to him, but he ate all the peacocks, and other small wildlife that was on the farm.  crazy, it was seen by construction workers while they were workin on the house..  I didnt beleave it, went over and saw paw prints, got a tracking book and sure enough they matched a linx.        ???? crazy stuff.. + i was there was 13 cases of CWD in West VA.  thats close to home.

Sure it wasn't a Sasquatch? 

I suppose there could have been a wolf in MD, but I would think it would be highly unlikely that it was a wild one.  Could have been a dump off or something?

A lynx in Maryland?  You sure about that one?  Could it have been a bobcat?

I would think its a little warm and moist for a lynx to live here.  I suppose it could have been a dump off.

Never heard of any wolves in Maryland but it could have been a large coyote or maybe a "coy" dog (dog-coyote mix...they are sterile but can get pretty big).  I did see a bobcat in Parkton 8 years ago while bow hunting...went 15 yards under my stand.

I've got to believe that the "wolf" was probably a large, gray fox.  Some of those things can get pretty big.  I've never heard of a coyote in MD, again, a gray fox can get pretty big.

I suspect the lynx was probably a bobcat.

Coyotes are becoming increasingly common in MD.  I have rsponded to several inquiries, and have collected two carcasses in Montgomery County within the last 2 years.  The last on was a male that weighed 42lbs.

http://www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife/coyote.html

Gray foxes and red foxes usually only weigh 6 - 15 lbs, while Coyotes can be up to 60 (usually 30 - 40).

The "wolf" could have been a wolf.  I have heard of people taking wolves for pets only to realize that they can not deal with them.  So they release them.  I do not know any details about this case, but you never know.

Coyotes are going to be on the hunt list soon, they're around. Wolf .... not a chance. I think I will go with BD and ask if any grizzies have been seen lately.

Interesting, that's the first I've heard of that.

Coyotes can be hunted in Maryland now all year round. I have busted several in chuck co. and 1 here in somerset.

Last years bowhunter survey reported sightings in 21 counties.

Coming back from a hunt in W. MD several years ago I saw a roadkill coyote off of Rt. 97 near Westminster. And several hunters on my Harford County lease have heard them this summer.

But if this was a wolf, it had to have been released.

I don't believe there's a wild population of wolf in Md. any more then the next guy.I saw the mount and it was a wolf.It would make a good size german shepard look like a pup.
My taxidermist is on the up and up and wouldn't even think about taking it before he knew everything was legit and first got a green light from the DNR.
I'll get a pic and post it as soon as I can.

Coyotes are everywhere. More so in Western Maryland and the northern counties like Hartford and Cecil than on the lower shore. If you stop seeing foxes where you normally see them, then you know that coyotes have moved in. In New England many of the coyotes have wolf genes and are NOT coydogs but coywolves. http://www.caledonianrecord.com/pages/local_news/story/fef373e9d

Coyotes, have been reported in all MD counties for about the last 10 years.  Any wolves in MD would have had to escape from captivity.  Could have been a feral dog or a grey fox.  I however, don't believe the bobcat sighting in Dorchester from the bowhunter survey.  There are bobcat in MD though, just no lynx.

Yeah, there's a den of Coyote down where I work in downtown Rockville, near Richard Montgomery High School. One of the adults was hit by a car, and removed by animal control. Since then I have seen the pups out and about, so there's definitely more than one.

Folks are saying their dogs are afraid to go outside after dark.

Finally got a pic of the wolf shot last year in Md. The picture doesn't do it justice.

That is a wolf for sure...maybe a wolf hybrid.

I had one about 17 years ago. It looked very similar to this animal.

It was 3/4 wolf. Pretty cool animal

I talked to the one DNR officer at the show in Frederick that was involved with this and he said at was at least 80% wolf.

Mdbowhunter1-the pic doesn't do the thing justice.If it came by my stand looking the size it looks in the pic I wouldn't have thought wolf either.In person that thing is huge.
