that had to have been a mess. the coyotes I have seen aren't all that big it wasn't too bad, hydra-shoks break up on impact for the most part. I didn't want to examine it further b/c if it had the balls to approach me it must have been rabid, coyotes are pretty timid by nature. And for size, here in East Central Indiana we have coy-dog hybrids something awful. They have the natural instincts of a wild animal but don't fear man, like a dog. He was about the size of a large German Sheppard.
