This will be long (sorry), and slightly graphic also (sorry again). I came to your forum a while back when I first took on this bottle calf & found some great tips for feeding, scours, etc. Thank you! Today, it is on a sad note that I write. This morning, I was horrified to find my bottle calf dead outside of her pen at the barn when I went down to feed her. The conservation agent has been notified; however Iâm told that it takes awhile for them to show up. In the meantime (while mourning her loss â she was a sweetie and doing so well), Iâm trying to figure out what sort of a critter killed her. It was something that was big enough to drag/carry her over a 4 ft pen. Her throat/chest was opened and appears that heart, etc. are missing. Her front legs are missing. The really strange thing is that this âsomethingâ peeled the hide all the way down her ribs. In our past experience with coyotes killing lambs, etc., we have never seen anything like this. Has anyone ever seen this type of behavior before in a predator? I am in Missouri â where rumors exist about Mountain Lions roaming in the area now, but till now Iâve considered this urban legend. I appreciate any information you can give me. At this point, Iâm very concerned for our calves out in the pasture, my geese, my dogs.. and us!!
