Two days ago I took our German Shepherd, Max, for a walk along a trail that leads to Tillamook Bay. We came across some tracks that were fresh and looked quite a bit different than what I've seen before. Is it a Wolf track?

Sure look like wolf tracks .
After more thought

Maybe Google "wolf track" and see the shape. They look pretty round and I would suspect a wolf to before sleek and narrower in shape.
I did an extensive Google search and the one distinct feature that I see in Wolf tracks is the long curved toe nails.

If it was a canine, it must have been a huge dog. My 80-pound Shepherd's tracks were not even half the size.

Chesnimnus wolf tracks. Big, but not huge. I've seen a cast track from OR-7, and it's huge!

Early this morning. Same trail. The space between the tracks were at least three feet apart.

Park host thinks Cougar due to the stride.

All I know is it was extremely quiet on the trail...not a sound. Then I saw the tracks.

Good times. :D
