Default Can anyone ID these tracks...?

Along the Arkansas, appeared that they came from something other than a large dog, a bit too big for that.

Kinda hard to make out. I have no real way of distinguishing size without any comparisons. With no knowledge of your local fauna ill just through some things out to give you some ideas.

If it had claw marks perhaps a coyote, or a racoon as previously said by Geoff. The tracks are small looking so I would say its a racoon.

If no claw marks perhaps a large cat. Mountain lion, bobcat maybe.

That's usually the easiest way to distinguish tracks from a dog to a large cat. along rivers up here. If there are claws or no claws since cats keep there claws in while walking.

It's a raccoon
Tracks in mud can appear larger then the animal's feet
