Big Dog Coyote

Subject of several posts and some discussion last September (see: ‘coyote’ tagged below) while we were calving our first-calf heifers, we believe this skull is that of the big male coyote that killed at least one Wagyu-cross calf and ripped the ham of another.

Spencer Jensen (seen below flanking a calf, ‘Paregien 2011’) dispatched the coyote 10 days later, ending our calf losses to coyotes to date. Note the size of the canine teeth—over a ½ inch longer than the female coyote he shot on his way up the hill to help us brand. Thanks, Spencer, for all your help!
