Interesting pic!!

 

Could be the pic but looks to dark and fur seems to "fluffy" for a cougar?

 

My first thought was a bear, neck seems to long and the color change on lower jaw says no.

 

I am going to go with a wolf.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Send her off to the DNR folks.  They may want the location.  What ever it is, it looks like it has mange.

Coyote.  Ears are bigger than you think.  The ear (far side looks pretty long and the closer ear appears small because of the angle of the head).   The white / light color fur on the lower jaw also suggests coyote.   The head looks like it is sloping out more than a cougar, the tree blocks the snout.

 

Too much time on my hands.

I see that grin on the original photo.  Coyotes can lay their ears down.

After looking at a lot more pics of same spot with deer I am prett sure its too small to be a cougar so leech might be right. or a small yote.

I still think it has mange, bald spot between the ears and really thin on the shoulder.
