Looks domestic to me.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

i too think it's a dog, kinda rounded and the nails give it away more. A little further away pic would also help to put it into perspective and to show it's series of steps.

Right front foot of a male red fox.

That would have to be an itty bitty dog in relation to the size of those twigs.

It's a dog. If you use the "X" theory for ID'ing a dog versus coyote track, on a coyote track you can draw an X through the negative space on the foot. On a domestic dog you can not, the lines will hit the pad.

John, the "X" theory is for distinguishing between canine tracks and cat tracks.......not between domestic dogs and coyotes. Some domestics have very fat feet and the "X" crowds the heel, but with cats you'll never be able to make the connection.

Besides, you can easily draw an "X" in the track in question.
