+James Pitcher I'm sure there were gators in the 20+ ft / 7m range one time, which could approach 1500lbs. They were highly endangered in the mid 20th century, but populations have recovered in Florida to the point of allowing hunting permits. Unfortunately, gator attacks are annual occurrences, even when knowledge of their behavior and location are evident. Gators are stealthy stalkers, and a moment's inattention can be deadly.

It does seem possible that your coyotes may be a sub-species of wolf. I imagine they could be a nuisance in the winter when the food becomes scarce.
