Hi Weston,
what distance between the prints? Fox prints are more elongated than dogs- the 'test' applied being either the ability to draw an 'X' between the pads without touching them, or being able to draw a straight line across the print along the top of the outer pads without bisecting the middle two. All very well but I guess the prints have melted! They look a little 'globular' to me from the photo- perhaps cat-like (which is why I asked for the scale) but difficult to see.
