    Right? I totally agree. I don't think it's a deer since the deer are pretty darn aggressive to the coyote and the coyote is the wussiest thing ever (according to the coyote poop I find pretty regularly, the coyote is generally eating birds, voles, and berries of some kind) but yeah, very strange.

    I also found this pretty off the coyotes' path (he's actually worn a path into the perimeter of the pasture )...maybe it was the hawk or the eagle? I did see a golden eagle around in the early summer and a redtail lives pretty close by as well. And, the redtail's favorite sitting tree is maybe only 50ft from where I found this...
    Hm. I wish we knew the story of this!

    ETA: Now that you mention it, I have not seen the younger buck since I found this..and he had been in a nasty fight with the big buck the day before...AND the little old lady who owns the property heard a "horrible scream" sometime early in the day about 24 hours before I found these intestines...maybe the big buck really got the younger guy and the coyote/hawk carried the guts off as a "prize" post-feast?...

    Just thought I'd post a very morbid possibility about this.

    A stomach wound could easily allow the intestines to drop out of an animal. How do I know this? Today I rescued a lizard that my dog attacked and his intestines were hanging out. Not detached, but still. Also, my father once had the pleasure of seeing an emu gut itself on a barbed wire fence and leave entrails across the paddock.

    I hope you got rid of them, since dead animal parts contribute to botulism in horses. Definitely look like intestines.

    The pictures aren't good enough for species identification, but it is guts. Like Speed said, they need to be disposed of. Yuck.

    Everybody is saying yuck... I'm going, hmm, looks like the bigger part is the kidney. I worked in a butcher shop for a little over a year. Trust me I saw pretty much everything, that there is inside a cow, pig, sheep, chicken, deer, and elk. It doesn't gross me out unless, I know the animal is suffering. If the animal is dead, I'm fine.
    It was probably from the eagles actually, because the intestines and soft parts are what the coyotes go for first. They wouldn't just leave it laying somewhere.

    You may be correct in that, (yet not knowing where you're located), but here in the heart of bear country, I'd removed those bits out of the pasture before the bear catch a good whiff! :)

    I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. My family lives up north of here and we have a lot of wolves, bears, and some cougars.
    I agree taking care of the remains would be a good idea.

    Yes they are guts. But I seriously doubt that an "animal" killed whatever they are from. For sake of discussion deer. My bet is someone field dressed a deer they killed, where it laid. Also a reason your horse may of been sketchy lately, people in camo walkin around in the distance geeks my gelding out bad. Most predatory animals go straight for the guts, that's the most nutritious. The carcass gets eaten secondary. That's just my opinion

    1. This thread is super old, but I'm loving this new info!

    2. Yep, I took care of it (dug a deep hole+buried it since there really isn't a "garbage" up there). No worries! :)

    3. Phly, this is in the middle of a residential area. Hunting=illegal...so I HOPE there are no hunters going around!!
    Good to know that information though! Thanks!

    I know this is older but the parts are too clean for an animal kill IMO Illegal or not looks like something was gutted and that was left. I'd say kidney and intestines.
