Trying to find out what attacked my barn cat? Please dont bring up coons or foxes because all foxes have been killed here by coyotes. The last one i saw had its head ripped off. It lived near a feral cat colony. They did a lot of construction here. That made a lot of coyotes and fishers come into around houses and they ate all the cats chased away killed all the small predators like foxes. The cat is missing all its hair under its neck? it tried to grab its throat and then grabbed its leg?? The thing that saved it was thee dog. But i didnt get to see it. But the animal didnt have a get hold of the cats neck. It wasnt confidant in this area. I have seen coyotes almost get attacked and have their tails grabbed by my dog before. But they are the most common predator. BUT we also have fishers?? Any idea what would go for its throat or try to quickly pull it away by its leg before the dog got there and mauled it? when i got there the dog was fine and the cat was just curled up in a ball cant walk properly. Its on anti biotics and pain killers. Its not going back outside. I cann try to add picture of the throat I see no puncture, I think it made a quick grab just got the hair and did not get a chance to do a re grab at the head cause the dog got on top of it and mauled it. I heard hyena like screaming sounds when the dog got there. Last night it came back for the cat because i saw my dog run outside into the dark like a bullet faoming at the mouth like it wanted to latch onto something.
