Saw these at our campsite last weekend and we're sure what they were.

The first one looks like bear scat, the second one looks like deer scat.

Top could also be coon. Would need a better perspective on the size. If the turd is quite abit more than 1 inch around. It's bear. Although that's a pretty large pile for a coon. Unless it's really small in diameter!

Hard to say without size comparison but looks like it could be bear or as Stash says coon.... :think:

Thanks all, the first pile is larger diameter than any coon piles I've seen. This was in northern MN by Orr, so it very well could have been bear.

Top picture: It looks like the remnants of other scat piles around it have a lot of fish scales in them. It would be interesting to see a larger picture and have the size of the scat, you may have found an otter toilet.
