    I was checking around my coop/run the other day (around dinner time) and noticed these fresh prints in everywhere! Any idea what kind of animal?

    The print is about the size of my fist! I am thinking either coyote or large dog. We have both in the neighborhood but I am leaning towards coyote. All the large dogs in the neighborhood are confined to there yards.
    Any guesses?

    It's a bird print. Something with no rear toe. Looks like a goose... [​IMG]

    eta: Also, coyotes have amazingly tiny feet for their size!

    Quote:One time someone in New Jersey had something attack one of their goats, I said I would be terrified, because I would think it was the Jersey Devil.

    I don't think I've been taken seriously on here since.
