Default just something I found today

well was a nice day to go for a ride on ATV and then for a longer hike about some of my friends lands, while out walking, I found a fawn's leg, about as fresh as could be, I am guessing what ever had it, dropped it when it heard me getting close and ran off, dropping it!
seen a few turkeys , some deer, and a LOT of chipmunks, I don't ever recall seeing so many of them, like every 50-75 yards down any trail there were some, and I covered about 18 miles, was crazy how many I seen just every where!

but I gather fawns are out now and as such, something is catching what they can

Wow, that had to hurt! I wonder if a coyote got her?

Coyotes can really do a job especially on fawns.

bears are also very well known for finding fawns in there first few days of life, as there one of the few animals that can smell them, and there are a lot of bears in this area
I do see a lot of coyote 's too in this area, so its coin toss of what maybe got it?

I would guess either a bear or coyote as well.. But I canít see either one of them dropping it and taking off. I would think that it would of run off carrying it..

It also could have been a dog, they will pick up things like that if they find it. I have found a lot of deer carcasses that have been scavenged and it is unusual for the lower legs to be eaten.

well my thinking was maybe it ran off with a larger section, and or, bears do like to sleep next to things they eat, or lay down when eating
and if you startled them, they run first and can leave things behind!

just never know

as for dogs?
really never seen any of them in this area, , its pretty far into large tract of forested land!(several thousand acres of forested land)
but you just never know, a stay one can be any where I am sure!
and I doubt there is much meat on a leg this small for anything to value much!
