Can I eat a chicken with a coyote bite mark?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Yesterday a coyote got into our chicken run and killed 10 chickens.  Some died of a heart attack and we'll eat those for sure.  Others were bitten, but there's only one small tooth puncture or two.  And their ribs were broken (from the mouth).  We processed those but don't know if we should eat them.  Can we eat a chicken with a coyote tooth puncture?  Sorry if this is posted in the wrong area, but I didn't know where it should go.

11 Barred Rocks, but we want more!

I would not eat the chicken , due to possible rabies that the coyote may have . May also be carring other diseases too.
