I agree as well... I'm guessing there are anywhere between 5-10 coyotes surrounding that deer. They ran him down and they struck at his most vulnerable spot (rear end). Coyotes are smart creatures, they know they can out last a deer in a foot race. They'll run them until they get tired and then attack.
