Found these tracks on a road on some new property we just bought in northeast Alabama. Just for info the spot in the road where I found the tracks is red clay. It was damp when I found it so it was probably semi-wet when made. The area around the road is thick pines with open hard woods a few hundred yards through the pines. The area is private property and is gated it is surrounded by national forest. There is no logical reason for a dog to be here since deer dogging has been outlawed in this county and none of the neighbors have dogs except one blueheeler which is very small.
The only way I had to save the track was to mash it onto paper. I found one in the clay along with deer tracks. The other was in a sandy rock type place about 50 yds away and didn't show up on paper.
I know for a fact that the forestry service has released two black bears into the areas; so it's possible they have realesed somthing else.
So my question is what are these tracks from?
