Texas Cryptid Canine Video

In the last entry we discussed historical references to red wolf and their hybrids in the American South. This week I bring you a video captured in 2012 in Southeast Texas. Ignore the dates on the video. We had it set wrong.

The tracks of this animal were four inches in length and we estimate due to vegetation and tracks it weighed between 70-75 pounds.

The still included here shows a a distinctly “red wolf” look and at least shows an animal that has much red wolf lineage. The video was taken in one of the counties where the last known “pure” red wolves were captured in 1980 for the federal captive breeding program.
