It might have been a Coyote!
(Poplar Hill, Ontario, Canada)
Just after 6:00 pm on Sunday, 13 November 2011.
Lions park in Poplar Hill, Ontario.
It was quite dark when I was walking the dog on Poplar Hill Road along the park.
Swinging my flashlight I caught sight of what I at first thought was a German Shepherd.
It was not near a path and it was alone.
While keeping the flashlight trained on it, I headed straight for it.
It slunk around me, not making a sound and crossed the road into the back yards on the east side.
I followed and it loped away toward the north where I lost sight of it.
