Now that deer season is over, we went and set a few leg traps to thin out the coons. We usually catch quite a few and then stop after a couple trips. This weekend we caught 2 big coons and a skunk.
But we also came across a trap that had been moved and was caught up in the hog paneling, as we went to observe there was in fact a raccoon leg in there, but obviously no raccoon.
So would a raccoon naw off his own leg to escape? Or could a coyote found him easy dinner?
We have trapped coons this way for a few years now and first time to find just a leg.
