Guide to identifying scat


If you're at an AWWE site in the middle of the day it might be difficult to see some of the larger game or other mammals. One of the best ways to identify who has been on the trail before you is to look for scat. 

Lynne Nemeth, Director of The Arboretum at Flagstaff, describes some of the most common mammal scat that you're likely to see; how to tell elk, mule deer, and rabbit scat apart; and how to distinguish coyote and fox scat from domestic dog poop. She also explains the difference between scat produced by bobcat and mountain lion from the canids (dogs, foxes, coyotes, and wolves), as well as how to tell an owl pellet from mammal scat. Introduced by Rose Houk, recorded and produced by Diane Hope with funding from the AZGFD Heritage Fund.
