      Coyote Is Revenged On Wildcat - Apache Jicarilla

      Coyote started off to find Wildcat. He came upon him while he was sleeping. Having built a fire he took out Wildcat's rectum and cooked it. When it was done he woke Wildcat and showing him the morsel, said, "This is all your people gave me to eat, although they have been killing plenty." He gave the piece to Wildcat who began to eat it. When there was little left, he told him the source of the food. Wildcat put back the small part that remained. That is why the fat of Wildcat is spotted.[2]
