What is this animal?

I thought it was a Coyote. But, notice the different colors and designs of fur. Notice the stripped fur on the buttocks, and that patch of gray outlined in black on the back. Got me. Any ideas? Ran in front of us near Newspaper Rock Rec Area in Southwestern Utah. And, hung around in the bushes for a picture.

  1. couldCould the stripes be a shadow from the sage brush? I've heard of a type of coyote species in the Arizona area that could actually be a coyote/fox mixed. I'll look into that more.
