Never had a yote chewed on but have had fox and coon and skunk tore up and partially eaten.

Any domestics running around? Could have been a pit or something.

Re: #4 down and look at this

I had a female yote one time missing half her tail and a fresh open wound where tail meets the body.I imagine the big male grabbed her by the tail when she wasn't following along.The sets nearby that one will get hit tonight or next.I got a big male the next night when this happened

Re: #4 down and look at this

Sometimes a trapped Coyote will be beat up by other Coyotes.
I witnessed this.
Years back, As I drove into a field, I could see my set from long distance. What the heck is that, I thought. I stopped and pulled the binos up. Wow, three Coyotes, I surely had a double.
Nope. I could see two Coyotes darting into the trapped Coyote and nipping/biting. They continued until I drove within a hundred yards, when they saw my pickup.
When skun'd, trapped Coyote had a bite mark on the back and two bites to the flanks. It was a young male.
My thoughts were this young male was pasting thru another's territory. Sorta like being at the wrong place at the wrong time, but couldn't run away.
What's your thoughts?

Re: #4 down and look at this

or could it just be a pecking order thing? one yote sees a higher up vulnerable and takes the advantage. kinda like when u shoot a buck or gobbler and a younger deer or turkey decides to beat up the animal you just dropped. just a thought.

Re: #4 down and look at this

I've had females bit up several times, from the evidence at the set it was her mate. Never caught the mate at that location. But have caught them at another spot close by. Using the females glands. On a semi related note. I've picked up females that seemed uncatchable using pup glands from that general area.
Also had a young male striped of its hide from the hips back and still alive. There were 2 labs coming out the lane as I was going in.

Re: #4 down and look at this

The "alpha male" theory is a crock, made up by a guy selling videos. They are animals. Dumb animals. They bite each other, heck sometimes they bite themselves.

Re: #4 down and look at this

So your saying there is no head yote for an area???I disagree.Almost all species have alphas for each area.Theres always they big buck the other bucks will not challenge.Theres always that big bear that the other bears stay away from.No doubt in my mind there is an alpha yote in each territory/family group
