This is what upsets me about living in TN. Everyone mistaken a coyote for a wolf. I hear this all the time. Also the other is that there is black panthers running around. And I have bigfoot living in my shed in the backyard, lol
The maned wolf is the largest canid of South America, resembling a large fox with reddish fur. This mammal is found in open and semi-open habitats, especially grasslands with scattered bushes and trees, in south, central-west and south-eastern Brazil, Paraguay, northern Argentina, Bolivia east and north of the Andes.
