I feel very certain it was coyotes, I don't know of any other animal that could or would do that specific way. If it was domestic dogs they would have been more maimed up something awful, had that happen to several goats when I was a child.
My mother saw a coyote get a lamb and carry it off in the evening while it was still daylight, we tried about every kind of prevention possible from electric fence to guard dogs and donkeys. The guard animals worked ok as long as they stayed with the sheep.

I read in Farm Show about a guy who hangs strips of bacon on his hot wire fence. He claims it trains the coyotes to keep away, says it doesn't take very long and the bacon will dry up after they get trained.

My first set of Rabies shots was from a bat bite. My recent 'boosters' (2 of them) were from a feral cat.

Knock wood, they coyotes are obnoxious and even poop on our driveway when the dogs are in at night, but we've never had a problem with them going after our calves. They did, however, completely destroy a 14 pt buck my husband shot & couldn't find for 6 hours.

I ran a small snare line a few years back on a grown up fence row and caught 6 or 7. The snares where really cheap (pre-made) it was something fun to do in the winter, but we kill all we see

:lol2: :lol2: Yeah.......... a bat. :lol2: Funny now, not so much back then.

Back around July of 1999, was out on the back deck chatting with a friend, looking up at the sky, thought I felt one of those big-a$$ moths in my hair, and I kind of swatted to get it out. Later on, when I got out of the shower, drying off, I noticed 2 perfect little punctures on left wrist. Sat there in bed, trying to figure out what they were, then it dawned on me that it wasn't a 'moth' at all but a bat! I couldn't believe that a bat had actually gotten tangled in my hair. :lol2: I always thought that was one of those old wive's tales kinda thing. NOPE! It really does happen. :shock: Next morning went to the doctor, he confirmed bat bite. Wanted to know if I "still have the bat" :roll: "no, it flew away". :lol2: So, he said he had to treat as if the bat were rabid. :| Better to be safe than sorry, made sense to me.

I caught a bat a few years back on a hula popper fishing at night down at my pond. He hit it about 1/2 thru the cast. It was a mess getting the nasty critter off that treble hook. Rats with wings.

Never caught a bat on a hula popper tons of bull frogs.
I bet that was interesting.
