Was out with the wife and got this picture from my cell camera set up on one of my coyote sets

[Linked Image]


I was not sure what it was and thought it might be 2 large black house cats
I will let everyone guess and tomorrow night I will post the second picture it sent

Looks to me like two of something. And black as night to boot! Good luck, Brian, hope you hold it if they get caught!

Coatis are cousins of the raccoons and like raccoons they come in a variety of colors and can be nearly completely black. Not saying that they are coatis but its possible and texas does have coatis.

My guess is either those coatis things or some mostly black skunks. My first guess without any information would have been house cats but since you done through that out I'm guessing not them.

Black house cats.


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

I thought house cats, wife guessed bears.

Next pic I thought German Shepherds but 3rd pic makes me think coydogs?

Can't remember ever seeing a coyote carry it's tail curled up over it's back?

Paranoid coyotes. It's funny what shapes and shadows at night will do to one's imagination.

Yea, I'm surprised. Guess they did have loong tails. Bigger than I thought too.

Checked cards in game cameras and found these 2 pics

Don't look like coyotes and probably the same black critter(s) as I had in original pic I posted

Funny that the coyote showed up a couple minutes after they were there. Either they are wild and run with the coyotes or it was a strange coincidence I guess

If those are wild dogs they're just as bad as coyotes and prey upon the same critters
