Very odd. You didn't find the head anywhere? My first though is human killed. My best guess is a bobcat since they go for a head/neck choke hold to kill. Defiantly not a coyote. They would have ate the butt and internal organs first... not the head.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

My first thought was human as well but this was not a trophy animal, there are some large rams in the herd. Head was chewed off and this was a full grown female about at about 100 lbs

Hate to say it, but it does look like some kind of ritualistic beheading. We have seen a predator head-neck takedown, but then other parts of the animal gets eaten.

We are pretty far off the main roads and know all the folks on the neiboring ranches. No muzzies around here

The body was dragged about 30 ft and there is blood on the grass indicating so. And agai this is not a trophy animal ...no horns

They took the head to hide the bullet hole. I've seen well over 100 predator kills in my life and I've never seen one like that.

How much blood are we talking about at the kill site, and the trail to the animal?

True, and that is a disturbing consensus, ruled out bigfoot and chupacabra. Whats the bag limit on aliens ?
Dammit now I gotta buy a thermal

Thanks for all the input !

I'd put a camera on the carcass and see what comes around.


Silver spurs and gold tequila
keep me hanging on.
Pretty girls and old cantinas
give me shelter from the storm.

I would think the head was removed by a human, and other critters have been chewing around the hole. The chewing would disguise the hole and make it look like the head was removed by something other than human.

Seen allot of kills over the years and the one thing they all had in common was the head was not cut off, broken off or consumed, it remained with the spine.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

There are some people who eat sheep's head. Quite the delicacy in some countries.
