Default Another Footprints mystery

So these are in my front yard in the areas where it's very wet. Not where the deer run through. They sort of look like a child's sideways boot print. I'm guessing it's some animals foraging for something. They seem to start nowhere and end nowhere so I don't think it's really a human being. Just appeared overnight last night. It's been warm and wet the last 2 days. I am thinking skunks Fox are coyotes? My computer is not working I'm trying to send this for my phone I don't know which photos came out so I'm sending all. BTW pretty much every tree there is an ash infected to various degrees with the Emerald Ash Borer. So all are coming down. Firewood anyone?

I can't see much for details...but you're not all that far from me, coyotes are getting active again. And bears are more frequent ....a rare thing for the southern half of CT. Last year a bear was sighted frequently just a mile north of where our offices are on Rt 85 in Waterford. I'm sure they're across the river on your side too.
Bobcats getting popular too. Wish I could see the pics in better detail...I can't really make them out much.

Hard to ID in the photos. Hogs would be a good start. Possibly a trace of Canadian dirt mixed with Ohio clay tho.

Trail cam time. If they were yotes you'd hear them yipping at dusk. Might be deer with the points getting lost in the muck, but there's usually a for sure tell tale in the firmer dirt.

As of right now hogs haven't been an issue, I haven't even heard of any sightings up around here. Maybe N.H. there might be a few escapee's from the private hunting areas, but not here.

Nocturnal pterodactyl, that's why there's no start or end point to the tracks. They're known to frequent parts of CT and drop from the sky at night to just wander around and catch their breath. Flying sucks after a while.
