Default Meat Showing On This Deer

I took this photo tonight (5-16-17) I'm not sure what is going on with this deer. This is the second one I have seen that is missing hair. The other one was missing a lot more, her whole front shoulder and mid section was bare. Any thoughts?

My guess: hit by a car (road rash) or grabbed by a predator.

Stress from waiting on the draw results and why cards have not been hit yet is making them pull their hair out??

Doesn't look like mange, more like a predator attack from the rear. Pretty resilient critters, hope she'll be ok.

I do see a lot of Coyotes in this area, usually when I don't have a gun. I saw a Lion there last year too.

More likely a lion. Looks very typical of what we would see of young lions that made lots of failed attempts. A car is not entirely out of the question, but the deer I look at never get ground down to the meat. When the hair is ground off, they are not typically getting back up. Coyotes can barely get a chunk of hide off half that size, from a cooperative dead deer.


It took this coyote several more attempts over a few minutes to get the hide open on this deer, and it is just laying there. It is not frozen either, they move it's legs all over, it is quite pliable.

The deer are in really sad shape almost everywhere I am looking.
