1st post, joined this am. I thought this would be a good group to get ideas on this image. Our lease is between Seadrift and Port O'Connor, and I found this peculiar drag mark under feeder yesterday am. I had been at same feeder the night before and there were no drag marks then. There we no tracks in drag mark, which was about 10 inches wide. I assume a predator nailed a small pig and dragged it from under the loose sand under feeder. We have coyotes and bobcats on lease and a reliable report of a cougar on property in the past 6 mos. Interestingly, there was no blood. So many tracks under feeder that I could not see a definitive track on either side of the drag marks. Bob

Can't open pic. But even without seeing it I'll bet it was a snake.

Well, it looks like it is a really big snake!

Looking closely at the photo, there appears to be foot prints properly spaced and then dragged over. It looks a lot like somebody dragged a carcass over the footprints to cover the footprints.

I could not get it to display either, but if you highlight the link here, right click, and select OPEN LINK, you will see it.

Do you have an image of a started or stopping point of the drag?

Here's another shot. Any human footprints are mine. There were only critter footprints before I came on scene. Was only person there on a very private lease.

Doesn't really look like a snake to me. Too straight and even. Maybe a big turtle or a predator kill. No blood would make me think turtle. Got some big gators in that area but it shouldn't be that straight from a gator either.

The smaller drag mark inside is the tip of the tail scratching the inside of mid tail drag mark

Big indigo! Tracks at least 10 inches wide. My guess is bobcat walking backwards dragging small pig.

Interesting. This spot is about 4 miles inland from intercoastal. There is a pond about 100 yards away. We'll look for a gator.
