    Are there black foxes in AR? I saw either a fox or coyote following a doe and a yearling Saturday. Couldn't get a shot to ground check it.

    I saw a black fox in Jonesboro a while back. Just up the street from my Mother's house.

    Seen black coyotes before actually 3 of them together.. They were with other coyotes that were of normal colors and were identical in everyway except they were black. They were just out of bow range. Got a very good look at them and no doubt that they were coyotes.

    I killed a black coyote years ago. He had a small patch of white on his chest. I was afraid that I had killed a dog, but it was definitely a coyote.

    seen a few black yotes but never a black fox. I have seen a fox that was almost completly white. He was just a old red fox I think. Almost a light gray color but either way it was pretty and unusual.

    I saw a pack of wild dogs that were mostly black...they were weird in that they all looked like miniatur Hyenas, and had little spindly tails with a wisp of fur at the tip end. Each was a carbon copy of the first, and had rounded ears! This was just north of the Dallas Co line!

    They are all just variations of the red fox. Silver, cross, black all are in actuallity red foxes. I believe they are muck more common up north but it's not out of the question here. I would actually be surprised to see even a red fox anymore here because of all the coyotes. Used to be pretty common but they are gone now. Only place I regularly see them is in Bella Vista.

    If it was a 'yote it had pretty short legs.
