Treeing a cat

Now this is how you tree a cat…some cat too.

Can anyone tell me the type of dog?

UPDATE: I ahve been emailed and the dog is a Black and Tan Coonhound:

The Black and Tan Coonhound is a breed of dog used principally for trailing and treeing raccoon. It’s a cross between the Bloodhound, and the Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound. The Black and Tan Coonhound runs its game entirely by scent. The courage of the Coonhound also make it proficient on the hunt for deer, bear, cougar and other big game, although many US states are restricting the hunting of antlered animals with dogs.

     A soon to be dead dog.

      Yes. A very very dead dog. That’s a serious cat!

      That dog is just inches from being shredded to death while it stands there and says “Woof!! Will someone take me for a walk?”

      On the other hand, real terriers will run at full speed down a hole, probably getting stuck several times and having to be dug out, after a badger. While badgers might look cute, they’re actually extremely mean fighters at close quarters and usually have TB. This tends to piss off farmers in the UK who aren’t allowed to shoot the things to stop them infecting their livestock.

      Never a good idea to underestimate the size of the fight in the dog, even if its quarry has plenty of fight of its own.

      • They look to be pretty cool dogs…gutsy for sure

    My money’s on the cat. The dog is smaller, has no claws and is out of its environment. Probably gutted by the cougar before it hit the ground.

    And If I was taking that photo, as close as that, I would want my Mossburg 500 loaded with 00 buck!
