wolf laid out by WeaselWomanCreations wolf laid out by WeaselWomanCreations
This is actually a possible coy wolf or big coyote. He was sold to me as "Mountable Lifesize" but he came with unturned ears and no bottom jaw, and quarter sized eye holes :/ Not really mountable for what I intented so I made him into a head dress instead, only mounting a very very difficult face. ...

He had slippage too, on the forehead, I used scrap fur to "fix" that...
This is one of my personal things I wear to ren fairs and Halloween parties.

I'd say he's a coywolf as you assumed. He's way too big to be a normal gray wolf. On the topic of his death, coywolves are NOT endangered, thus they can be hunted/trapped with the proper tagging/licence. I personally, see nothing wrong with this picture. If you do not like it, as she has clearly stated, you do not have to comment, nor fave it. And considering the description, it sounds like this person has Native American in her, or she is very close to nature and thus considers the wolf, or anything like said animal, to be her totem animal and thus wearing such a skin, makes one closer to that animal even if it's dead. Some people on here have GOT to learn their facts BEFORE critizing something. You have no idea if this animal was shot/trapped or if it was found already dead. I know of a guy who actually does this with any road kill that he finds. He's had so many threats, that he eventually made a public apperance during a town meeting, and did a demo on just what it was he did with the animals he had been wrongfully accused of "killing". Remember people, you don't have to comment on something that you do not like. Just go on your merry way without causing un-needed drama/issues.

Again, I'd like to point out, that Coywolves (cross between a coyote and wolf) are not endangered, and are thus, quite sustainable in being hunted/trapped with the proper tagging/licence.

Thank you for that comment :) 

I think he is a coywolf as well, he is rather dark on the backside and large. I now live in Tennessee and the yotes are much much smaller here. When I lived in northern Maine, they were larger and had a wider range of colours, and DNA tests on northeastern yotes (and those in north west regions too) proved significant wolf ancestry. This hybridization I believe led to the larger, more pack orientated coyotes in the north. Living in northern Maine, I used to see them engage in pack structure of up to 7 members. In Tennessee, where the coyotes are more "purebred", they usually live in traditional pairs as they did in their original south west desert habitat before spreading across the continent. The ones in Tn are also less of a threat IMO. They don't follow me lurking in the woods like they did in Maine. Here, they run away from you mostly. 

I don't know if I am Native American, my heritage is currently unknown as I do not know my biological father's side as well, enough to be traceable either. I do feel a strong connection to nature though regardless of my lineage. I think being raised in a desolate sub arctic (lol, I always call it that, Im sure it's not technically a sub arctic) in the middle of the woods with the nearest walmart 40 miles away helped make me this way lol. Gosh I miss it all so much...

In Grafton, Ontario, we had large packs of coywolves and they were so "humanized" that one could walk among them. A guy who ran a cattle/sheep farm even fed them to discourage them from attacking his livestock during the harsher winter months. He said them canines know when there's food a plenty and when it's gonna be rough goin and they seemed to know he would have a surplus of livestock that had been slaughtered in his freezer. I watched him one day, thaw out this massive chunk of beef, and then he made a stew! And them damn coywolves ate every last drop too. 

So I would safely say that your big guy is most likely a coywolf. It's most likely unknown as to what kill him (or her xD) but the very mere fact that it's getting some form of use, rather than being left to rot in some back woods, is more respectful.

What you're doing kind of hints you may be native american as most natives seem to be drawn to certain totem animals and seem to hold a keener respect for using "everything" for "something" despite what the hoodlums might say.

I love Canada :) I want to move there some day. Even if that means facing the coywolves again lol. 
I never fed the ones we used to deal with. They got their food from wild game they hunted or came across to scavenge. I remember them vividly though lurking around, curious. Back then I just called them coyotes, because as a kid, I didn't know anything beyond that. Here in TN, they scatter away scared. In the north they approach you more. 

I have been mistook as a Native American by my features a few times, but I have no DNA tested proof as of yet to solve if it's true or not, so I currently refer to myself as Caucasian (mom's half is proven to be all white in more recent generations. There is some ancestors from Spain way up in there). I have taken a huge interest into studying the various cultures they had and the social issues they face today. I'd like to educate myself on it because if it's proven, this knowledge can apply to me and if I am not Native American, I can at least know more and understand their lives and issues beyond the stereotype the media puts out.

._. that poor wolf

Why, because he was responsibly killed/died of natural causes, and was turned into a work of art that honors his spirit and former stature?
