My client wants to know what type of animal made the poop in this picture. There were numerous “samples” in the back yard. See ball point pen in photo for scale. Its greenish color and appearance similar to a horse or cow poop makes me think it’s not a meat eater, or at least has been eating plants lately. The property is in western Washington state, across the Puget Sound from Seattle in southern Kitsap County. Possible contenders common to this area are; Racoons, deer, coyotes and black bears. There are a very small number of cougars around here too. I’m thinking it’s too big for a racoon though. The client has small children and has genuine concerns about letting her kids play unattended in the back yard.
