Mine will probably be a poor example though as I run all mine through the washer. My guess is if they look bloody, there is blood in the underfur. Just a guess though.

THe other areas it may be bloody is around the area where you dispatched it.

My guess is the area below the snare is "bloodshot" so that is why it is red. Not sure why the rest is so red though. I will turn mine around 8 then photo for you.

It is generally a bit more red if I don't wash them, but after the washing machine they are pretty clean.

The fur stands up so much, as you can see from others in the photos it takes a bit more combing to calm it down \:\)

What do you guys do about the ears??
I did the two I caught this year and the ears tainted on both, stank real bad and the hair pulled out.

Thanks
