Mystery Tail!

One of our staff naturalists brought in a tail that she found near her property in Lolo.  It is rather flat, but that may be due to the fact that it was buried under a thick layer of snow for much of the winter.  Does anyone have any guesses as to what it may be?

We have a few guesses as to the species here at MNHC, but we aren't quite sure, so we're open to any suggestions and thoughts you may have.  Please share your ideas in the comments!

  1. It looks just like a tail I found a few years ago. It looks and feels catlike, but I doubt that the owner gave it up voluntarily.
