Was that a Fox or Coyote Walking Across Colwell Lane

Was that a fox, or was that a coyote, walking casually in front of a reader’s car yesterday on Colwell Lane near Wilmer. The reader reports that it looked sick and hungry. We thought we would be able to tell by the ears, but both animals have pointy ears. It also looks like it has a skin condition, but I am not Jack Hanna.

Both animals live in the area, but seeing a coyote is rarer. Lafayette Hill has pretty consistent coyote sightings.

Let us know what you think in the comments.
