It's just an old dog or possibly coyote print.

I would say a deer with a deformed foot and overstepping his front tracks giving the impression of three toes.
If you look at it without the middle toe, it looks like a wide deer track. Something that could be a birth defect or an injury.

Of some kind. Not a crypto creature.

Do you know how many toes a coyote has?

I wasn't very clear. All four feet have this type track.

Well, if the second pic is of this strange footprint, it's a dog or coyote. You see four toe nails, hence 4 toes The reason it looks like three is because what ever it stepped in was fairly solid so his pads didn't sink all the way in making the two center pads look like one.

You are commenting on coyote track i posted to clarify to Chango when he said "that is just a coyote track". I copied the image of the three toed track. It is below.

Not being able to see the print in person I can just make observations on the image. Since the track is filled with debris it would indicate it had been there for awhile before you discovered it. That said it's possible that natural forces such as rain and heat could deform the print(s) so they look differently than when they were originally placed there. Based on that I honest can't say if there are only three toes because the track is so deteriorated I can't tell where the toe pads are and the other pad (not sure what it's called, heel pad ?) is. I can see 4 distinct pads which might be the toes and a 5th pad but can't tell it's shape. If you can find some fresher tracks that are less affected by the weather it'd be easier to come to a better conclusion.

Nothing like an expert that couldn't read the thread properly from the beginning.Plenty of definition even with the debris. The track doesn't have to be fresh to get a good take on it. You are just trying to cover your tracks! No time to waste on you Sir!
