The earlier photo of all the wolf tracks led to a good discussion about their relative size, and how to photograph them. I’d say Lynne Stone really showed how.
Here’s her recent pic of wolf tracks in central Idaho with 60 pound mixed breed dog standing next to them.
The photo shows the actual paw of a 60 lb mixed breed dog next to a wolf print. The dog’s paw is just over 3″ long. The wolf print is obviously nearly twice the size.
The wolf was walking along a road made of decomposed granite (“grit”) that’s common in parts of central Idaho — and grit gives an accurate depiction of paw size. I did not consider the wolf track exceptionally large.
This photo might help folks identify wolf tracks from a dog or coyote. If you see a track and it’s about the size of your hand, it likely might be wolf. Obviously wolf pup prints are smaller and a few domestic dog breeds do have very large feet.
