Discussion on shooting predators & varmits and the trapping the furbearing animals.
Moderators: Preacher1011, nitrousneil
I was up in wyoming this past summer and ran into an old timer that just got done setting some traps.I was talking to him and he said that if you cut open a female coyote from her lower end and look where the umbilical cord comes off to feed the pup, it will leave a permanent back dot, and you can count these dots and tell how many pups she has had in her lifetime. I thought it was very interesting, but I would like to know if thats really the case.....what do y'all say?

Several years ago a college student working at my vets office asked me if i would give her all my female carsasses. She was doing some kind of study for school to see how many pups coyotes have. So yes I would say its fact.

He's sorta correct just has some anatomy wrong. You can count the placental scars (scars on the placenta) which will tell you how many litters and a close # on the pups
....its like taking x-lax when you have a bad cough. It wont clear up your lungs, but it sure stops you from coughing
