Clumps of Fur

Lars found clumps of fur along the trail in Delaney Complex, near the Harvard/Stow line on January 6th.  The trail runs along the crest of a long esker.  I founds 8-10 clumps of fur along the trail, clearly pulled out, and predictably spaced every 20 feet or so.  The 4th photo seems distinctly coyote to me.  As I tried to create the story in my head, I envisioned a chase and fighting.  A fight for dominance, or was it romance?  References I read stated January-March for Eastern Coyote breeding season.  Thoughts?  Other possible plot lines?

  1. Hmm, not sure. I guess I think of coyote hair as a bit fluffier. This looks coarser and stiffer to me, more like deer hair.
