While doing research on coyote calls and Bigfoot, we came across an interesting theory that was discussed in the BFRO "Blue" forum 3 years ago. During a recent expedition to the Sierra "Kill Site", prerecorded coyote calls were used to solicit animals in the area. Though blasting audio of coyote calls isn't really a new thing, some explanations on the effectiveness of it is pretty interesting.
According to researchers, coyotes and Bigfoots are usually in close proximity to each other. They theorize that since Bigfoot only eat the liver of their prey, perhaps the coyotes take advantage of a fresh Bigfoot kill by scavenging. Forum member PBYodeler believes Bigfoots and coyotes have a mutual agreement to share food. "It's also possible that Bigfoots could use the calls of a hunting pack of coyotes as a dinner bell of sorts. If he knows they're making a kill he could drive them off it and take what he wants," PBYodeler wrote.
Another person, who sounds like he knows what he's talking about, believes Bigfoots "proactively employ coyotes to literally digest the evidence of their kills":
I think you've touched on the significant behavior that is occurring between the Squatches and their canine neighbors. There is an awe inspiring intelligence level to the Big Guys that must be factored in as we cipher out their behavioral equation. It would be easy to overlook their sophistication of thought. I constantly find myself underestimating them but I'm learning. It's so easy to assess them to be the equivalent of other common wildlife because that's where every other animal has always fit. They have evaded the radar of modern science for all these years and succeeded where nearly all other animals have failed. There are many reasons why, but one of the primary reasons is because these creatures possess an intelligence far exceeding nearly all other animals (man being the primary exception and I know some who would even debate that).
All that was said to preface my point that I think there is a brilliant cunning to the coyote/Sasquatch transaction. The Sas are elusive. A large amount of Sasquatch behavior is steered by their desire to avoid detection and interaction with us. They adopt nocturnal activity patterns, they avoid malleable ground so as not to leave tracks, they may bury their feces and they probably dispose of their deceased. They really are geniuses at living a covert lifestyle. I think they proactively employ coyotes to literally digest the evidence of their kills. The mob has "cleaners" and so do Squatches.
No doubt they manipulate the yotes for other collateral purposes too such as providing audible cover for movement, driving/confusing prey and maybe the occasional snack when times get desperate. There's probably some squatches who haven't adopted any yote groupies and that may be for reasons related to factors like an ungulate sparse diet or less pressure from nearby human populations. There might be a social dynamic at work too between a lone Sasquatch and his coyote pals.
