Can anyone identify this animal skeleton found in Oklahoma?

Looks like a dog. From the canine teeth, it is clearly carnivora, and the paws also appear canine. The only other canines likely to be in Oklahoma are foxes and coyotes; foxes would tend to have shorter legs relative to body size, and coyotes have a narrower muzzle.

Also, coyotes are smaller than most people think. The largest coyote I ever dealt with was about 30 lb., and it was an unusually large male. Most coyotes, especially females, are more in the 20-25 lb. range. My dog is 50 lb., and he is intermediate between a Shetland sheepdog and a retriever in size.
