    Photos: Are these coyote, or fox pups?

    I was sure these were coyote pups when I took the photos.

    It was at dusk, 8:40pm, near darkness. They looked gray to brown.

    We hear a lot of coyote howling, other wild screams at night, and something here digs up gophers right out of their tunnels.

    Now looking at the photos these look more like fox pups.

    Anybody know?

    I have posted some photos. Anybody have a positive ID for these?

    (The last photo shows a dug-up gopher run, with a glove to indicate the size. These excavations are everywhere).

    Cannot tell. What is in the pic with the glove? If scat, then a google on scat may help.

    Oops. I added to my post, above, to better explain the photos. The last photo is a torn-up gopher run. There is some fresh dirt shoved into the trench from below the far end, showing that the gopher is still there.

    Fox and coyote are canines so can be hard to tell. The length of the legs in relation to the length of the body would indicate they are fox. Opinion only, not a wildlife expert by any means and I prepare to stand corrected.
