In reference to coyotes pooping up high in grass, brush, etc. Almost everytime the cowboy crew on the ranch where i work trailers out somewhere to gather cows everyones dogs bail and and commence to poop and pee all over the place and interestingly enough quite often crapping in sage brush or rabbit brush as high up as they can. I have never seen them do this in the yard only out in the brush. What do you guys think

I believe they do it to get it noticed more...

You are both correct. Raptors regurgitate 'castings' which are pellets of indigestible matter from their crop.

Ever skin a winter deer ?


Saw this and thought I would throw in what I know. I keep my 2 Malamutes on a raw meat diet, when possible. They do do very well on it. When they are getting plenty of bone as they are supposed to. The scat is hard and very white with little smell. Yotes have the same type scat when they are eating from large prey that have the fur and guts gone. So, in a way, it is fat content but I would say more accurate would be bone content.

I have a comment I not seen yet on this post. I think animals defficate before they do something. Coons leave droppings on the side of the road in the brush or on a high spot before they cross the road. I see it in timbered areas more than prarie. Why? I think they want to get rid of it so they can go quicker across the road.
I think canines do mark their teritory with droppings- sometimes you see smaller parts of droppings that they tried to squeeze out to make their mark but other times you see bigger droppings. Maybe they just have a favorite spot to go or they want to wait till they get to the edge of their territory. I think they just go when they have to also. The high spots covered with coyote scat make sense to me that they are leaving their calling cards for others. Sometimes they howl from those spots too so it leads me to believe it is a comfortable spot fot them becuase they spend time there with the other coyotes in their pack. I think there is not only one reason (sometimes no reason other than they have to go) they leave droppings- I haven't seen one yet that can count to 2 so it may be linked more to instinct or being exited about something more than a thought?


Just passin through

Interesting point, but I think they are marking the area. 'Coons usually have toilet areas, like 'cats.
Canines ? Different story.

I've been finding a lot of this scat on field edges, appears to be mostly bugs and a little grass. I can usually find yote tracks within a few yards of the scat, but there's seldom rhyme or reason for the location. Is this typical of young coyote? Or am I completely off the mark?

Wild Plum but yes, persimmon seeds are similar, just later in the fall.

I guess that explains why I found two crawfish claws on top of a gopher mound 100 yds from a pond. I kept wondering "how did they get here?"

We see a lot of crawfish far from water here.
They burrow down deep in the ground clear down to the water table and will stay there for months.
