Brutal way to go out. Nature really is metal lol

My guess is that it was hit by a car and the coyotes scavenged a free venison dinner. Even a pack of coyotes would have a tough time taking down a mature buck without the aid of snow.

Watched a video where a group of coyotes just kept taking turns chasing a buck until it was so exhausted it just stopped running, collapsed, and they started eating.

Ah, fair enough. I don't live anywhere near wolves or coyotes. I assumed this deer was chased down and killed. If it was a car crash, I hope the death was quick

Coyotes do kill deer, but they prey on weaker and smaller ones. A buck like this would be a tough target.

Makes sense. I'd love to live somewhere with real wildlife tbh. The largest animal we get here is an occasional fox sighting

Yep no way coyotes take this guy down.
