Description

This skull was found today, not there when last I walked this trail on Saturday 17 Jan 2015. I have not found any other portion of the body. I suspect this bear was killed by a human hunter and that the skull was carried some distance by a medium sized mammal, perhaps coyote.

Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, and as draft animals (oxen or bullocks) (pulling carts, plows and the like).
