I will get up there this weekend and rotate it on its side and see if that matters. Thanks Brent for the suggestion. It may be a weird task to accomplish. It may not get accomplished depending on what may happen to ooze out. I may just pop it again with a pistol round to release any possible pressure and then slice the side with a knife to open it.
Even so, I can't figure out where the coyotes are. I actually have pictures of them elsewhere on the property since this guy has been hanging out.
