http://www.reddit.com/r/animaltracking is a great place to get help with

> I have found what I think are two solid poops a couple weeks apart on our

> deck railing near the suet. The poops are egg shaped, 3/4" - 1" long. The

> first one was pale in color and contained very small bones, perhaps fish,

> and something I took to be perlite. The second was light brown and seemed

> to be made up of the soil amendments peat and perlite, with perhaps some

> very finely crushed shell.


> After looking at the Carnivore Spotter, I'm thinking opossum or raccoon as

> We're in a part of West Seattle with lots of unmaintained spaces.
