You'll get more reponses in the taxidermy forum, but I'll let you know what I see. Some coyoteswill tan up just fine even if left laying around, others will slip fairly quickly. For that reason, they need to be skinned and frozen or salted immediately. Keeping it in a cooler for a day is almost certainly what caused the problem. I assume that you had ice in the cooler, which melts, and then you have water. Water is a breeding ground for bacteria, which causes slippage.
