CSI Mystery: What's Been Living Under My Deck? WARNING: I guess it's a littlet graphic
May 4, 2013

This morning we found this little skull  (it's slightly larger than the size of my fist) lying haphazardly on the steps of our deck.

We live in the city. Not used to finding animal remains in the yard.

Three nights ago I had a near encounter with a coyote while walking the dog.

At night, we were just coming up to an alleyway. The neighbors have a 4 ft. high fence around their property that obscures the entrance to the alley a bit.
The dog and I were about 20 ft. from the entrance, when a coyote, going like a bat out of h*ll, came charging out of the alley, across the road, across the neighbor's lawn, and a very loud fight with a raccoon started up.

It was dark and I couldn't see exactly what was going on. The dog and I just backed our way down the alley to the next street and got out of there.

Wondering if this is the raccoon?

Can anyone ID this skull? I have a sinking feeling it might be canine.
