Wolf with a mangey coat. Abnormally dark coyote. Who claimed this was a hyena?

Here's another image:
There are a few possibilities.
1) Deformed wolf or wolf-dog hybrid
2) Injured wolf or wolf-dog hybrid (a hip or spinal injury)
3) A wolf or wolf-dog hybrid that was mounted by someone with no real skill at taxidermy or pelt preservation
4) Soem comination of those options.
Personally, I'm certain bad taxidermy is a culprit here. A combination of lack of general skill, and - from the look of it - too small a mount for the pelt.

There is a photo of him at this link: Free Republic.
Apparently he was found after being lost for years.
Original B&W photo:
Photo after recovery:
The rifle he is holding is the actual gun used to shoot the creature.
