Default Any Idea?

We checked our cameras today, and we had a bit of a different pic on it. It appears to be either a huge black coyote, coy dog, or a wolf. I'm thinking it's a coy dog as I think a wolf has a fatter snout, but I've only seen one wolf up close and that was a 150 lb pure bred male.
I guess it could be a wolf as they've been moving south here in WI, but I haven't seen enough to know for sure. We know all the neighbors, and their black dogs, so the next nearest place is almost 10 miles. I just thought I'd see what you all here think if you've seen wolves before.

Black yote or coy...head/snout is too small for anything else.

Pretty large body for a coyote, but could be.

The Lighting may make it look black but I'll bet it's a yote.Rattlesnake what part of Wisconsin are you in?I have read some about some wolves moving further south in Wisconsin,and here in northern Illinois I've heard of posible wolf sightings too.I have seen some large yotes around here too that where really long legged and I doubt they where coydog.Also that pic shows what looks like a thick or bushy tail like coyotes have.
