There is some sort of animal shitting (on a regular basis) in my flower beds alongside the foundation of my house. This pile of turds is a little over six inches long, but the coiled turd on top is fully 10 inches long. It appears there is hair in there but no bones – I never see bones, or obvious fruit seeds. I do not see anything like this described anywhere although it must be a common animal. Coyote? Nobody says their turds can be long and coiled and I've seen plenty of coyote scat, full of hair and bones. This ain't that. It's not dog poo. What is it?
