I like to collect examples of the local fauna. This is probably the most numerous of the carnivores here although it is a bit of an omnivore. There are some molar like teeth in the back of the jaw. Looks pretty much like a dog's jaw as far as the teeth go. The skull does not have the narrow snout of the canines. The shape of the skull is catlike but with dog-like teeth.
The skull is about 5" long. The size of a small dog but much more dangerous. They can hold their own against a coyote.
On summer night I like to sit on my deck in the peace and quiet. Until a pair of racoons try to kill each other that is. Quite the sound.
