Sometimes coyotes and Gray Fox just do that, I have heard of deer doing that too.

Nothing you could have done.

The skin had a lot of fat stored in the hide when the hide went into the tanner the cell walls were weak and tear very easy.

For the record I have a wolf, that feel apart from a commercial tannerie. I look at it and it tears.

next test
