Scat identification

Asked November 23, 2018, 6:15 PM EST

I was hoping to get this scar on our property identified. It is a wooded property out in the country in Howell and my boots are size 12 for reference. I assume coyote, but was hoping for some confirmation. Thank you in advance!

I think most biologists would find it difficult to give you a good answer here. However, it doesn't look like a coyote to me. I can't make out the details, but it seems to have little if any hair.
