I've heard of mountain lions doing that. Coyotes, not so much.

I can't even get buzzards to eat coon.....but I would lean much more to a dog than a yote in your case.

Sometimes that happens to coon if they are in shallow water or on a drowner in shallow water. They do it to themselves.

Had a coyote bite and shake a coon could tell by the track's in the snow. The coon was still alive when I got there but breathing really shallow. Never seen anything eat a coon before other than birds.

I get that around here also at times. I have had several coon killed caught in a coyote set and eaten by coyotes, some coon get found by a pair or a group of yotes and they are toast just because they can do it.

I have heard coyotes catch and kill coon while sitting on my front porch just after dark this late summer. Terrible squealing and death wail sound for a few seconds and then its all quiet. Coyote kill.

Last year had coyotes kill 2 different coon, but did not eat them. They also shredded one red fox. Nothing but a human eats coon lol

Had them do it here. Once found a foreleg in a trap, stripped of all the red meat. The rest of the 'coon was cleaned up. A fresh snow told the story. It was a small pack....I can't remember just how many there were, it was 15-18 years ago.

Probably a coon hunters hounds. So long as they dont take my trap I figure its just one of those things that happens. Coon dogs once released are naturally going to bee line to a coon in a trap. If my trap is gone I get a little grouchy.

Coyotes, fisher & marten will eat 'coon. Maybe big woods animals are different than farm animals. The 'coon I've seen eaten were not killed by the eater. A big 'coon might give a little coyote trouble.

I tried using coon for bait for both marten and fisher and never had it touched.

Coyotes are a recent invader of my neck of the woods. These coyotes will eat anything including coons. I caught one next to a buried coon. I find raccoon hair in a lot of scat too.
