  • Blood on the tracks, mystery bones

    Any educated guesses on these animals bones? I have no clue
    These were on a railroad bed 10 feet from the tracks. Swamp on other side of tracks. Turkey, deer, coyotes, rabbits use the area

    For scale the large bone is the size of paintbrush

    Looks like Deer bones to me, I'm the kind of crazy that salvages a few for projects so kinda like treasures in my book. Lol Train > Deer

      It's as though a feeder or feeders, had the meal right there

        I can't tell much about the bones, but as a train guy, I know dogs are really prone to get between the tracks and when a train approaches, they run directly down the track instead of sidestepping ....:for some reason domestic cats do the same thing. Could be a large dog...? I don't see a skull anywhere...

          The large bone looks like a deer scapula....

            Most likely deer bones. I see a lot in my area due to heavy traffic and deer collisions. A deer gets hit and makes it about 100 yds into the woods and dies there. Lots of times though the head is separate and I find it a ways away.
            The chase is better than the catch...

                Deer , coyotes got it then the rest of the food chain took its
                turn . Jethro would know best but we do see coyotes walking the tracks looking for an opputunty when I am on the mainland .
