That looks like one miserable yote, looking for an easy meal. Lots of them around my area, and we are deep in the heart of the city. It's neat to hear them yipping and howling at night time.
Yotes aren't stupid, have friends that have lost many dogs to them in the country. The pack sends a bitch out, she leads the dog back and that's the end of the dog. One of my neighbors had her little dog snatched, dog was 20 feet in front of her, yote grabbed it and gone. I'd be mortified.
