Saturday night January 8th at about 6 pm on rt 180 3 miles North of Williamsfield , Il almost to Cadwell creek rd. I saw a huge what I thought was a wolf cross the rd. I know it sounds crazy but I also know what a coyote looks like and their size. This thing was huge. Is there anyone familiar with that area? have you seen or heard of anyone else talking of seeing or hearing wolves in that area ?.

I remember a rumor going around a year or two ago about wolf sightings in Knox.  But it never amounted to anything.

I will , this one sure looked allot bigger then 50 pounds. I would guess at least 75 to 90 and probably 25 to 28 inches at the shoulder. It was dark also had allot of gray and brown.

My cousin works for Block Farms along Spoon River and he took some pictures with his cell phone of some huge canid tracks along their hog buildings.  There isn’t a large dog for miles in that area.  He said the tracks came straight from the river and went back towards the river.  This was back in Dec 2010.
