Four years ago when I was visiting friends in New Hartford, off of Rt 5, we saw a wolf in their wooded backyard but wasn't a 250 pounder. Saw a few coyotes also. Not too long ago a bear was roaming around Utica & N.Hartford also. Think it was killed when it got hit by a truck.

Saw one on Halsey Road. It ran across the road. Too big for a coy-dog.

Great. As it is I've got coyotes waiting when I take my dog out. Need to figure out something to bring with us for defense on my walk.

Thanks for the advice. There are always high winds where I am so I don't want to chance spraying myself or my dog. I wanted a stun gun but can't NYS. Thinking automatic paintball pistol at this point.

Highly unlikely...Maybe a Coyote.. Even that is unlikely... Very low coyote population.. Last I know there was a small pack of 5 coyotes in and around Westmoreland.. They roam long distances.. That and there are no wolves according to the NYSDEC in NY...
Did you get a text msg with a pic of one ? If so I've gotten it numerous times, that and the MT. Lion killed hoax....

The stories of mountain lions is true because I work for the state DOT and we picked one up dead last year in Clayville.

That's not true...I heard the same thing... So I actually called the regional DEC office.... Being an avid outdoorsman.... I wanted to know if I should be taking prevtative measures to protect myself, a MT.Lion will kill a grown man with ease..

DEC response was this........ ROTFLMAO..... in layman's terms... 1st of there would be public notification and awareness of a predatory cat of that nature being stocked anywhere in NY state.. MT lions have never and are not planned to be introduced introduced into NY wildlife....
Wolves aren't either....

A lot of you folks could really do yourself the benefit of the almighty Google... There are no wolves or mt lions in NY.... Call up your local DEC office or visit them they are right in downtown Utica.

It's definitely not a Lynx either, they're native to the Quebec area in Canada.

No such thing as a coy dog... Coy dog is basically a feral dog.. Meaning a stray dog...The implication is that it is half coyote half dog....There isn't one documented case of a half dog half coyote anywhere... So it was either a stray dog, a dog off a leash or a coyote.... Now having seen many coyotes in my lifetime... I can assure you a coyote is roughly the size of an average size German Shepard they really aren't that much smaller than a wolf, and are very closely related to a wolf.....
That said mis-identification and old wives tales or drunken hillbilly talk usually lead to stories like this.

Panthers are indigenous to the entire southeastern united states. I have seen with my own eyes in north Carolina and Florida. Tenn borders N.C.
