YES!!!!
Safely? I dunno!
Taste? I dunno, never tried 'em.
I've heard Judd Cooney state that there was only one animal that he didn't eat. Don't remember now if it was coyote or bobcat, but it seems as if it was one or the other. He was once Colorado DOW. Don't know where he is now.

I do know it's documented that guys on the Lewis & Clark expedition preferred dog to many other meats. Of course, history also document native americans eatting the contents of a freshly killed deers intestines like a push pop! So just cause you can, doesn't mean you should.

'otter,

They ate the stomach contents for the vitamin content. They didn't know that they just knew it was good for them. Taste is a matter of... well... taste!

Addendum - friends of mine who raise sheep and kill coyotes around the flocks report that not even the buzzards will eat a dead coyote. You can make your own decision from there regarding coyote fillets.

Coyote is not bad at all. Sort of tastes like dog. Fox is a little sweeter then either of them. But unless you have had to eat them most people do not know this. It's only proper to eat what you kill or give it to somebody that will. groundhog,muskrat,raccoon,beaver,rattle snake,chicken,mink,weasel,opposumm , you get the idea. There are recipes for them all including skunk. Hog and chicken are amongst the dirtiest of all animals and people eat them every day. Find a recipe and give it a try, don't throw your nose up to eating an animal just because someone else doen't think its good or doesn't like it. Your taste may very well be different. Some people don't like deer or meat for that matter. have at it

The answers in order asked are yes and no. They are both edible but you would probably need to be very hungry. I"ve never killed or eaten bobcat. I've killed coyote and they stink like nothing else I've ever killed so I didn't find them very appetizing. I have eaten fox and found the meat sort of sweet, so I guess if you can get past the smell of dead coyote long enough to cook it it might taste similar. I have talked with those who have eaten mountain lion and found it delicious. So, who knows it might be so with bobcat. If you are hungry enough I guess you would eat anything. I kill coyotes as a public service and the ravens, magpies, and I suppose their fellow coyotes take care of eating them.
