This chapter identifies carnivore specimens in Porcupine Cave. There were 22 species and 144 specimens of carnivores reported from nine areas in Porcupine Cave in 1996. Since then, Ursus americanus has been added to the faunal list, 774 specimens of carnivores have been identified, and three new areas (Mark's Sink, Will's Hole, and Generator Dome) have been excavated. These new sites are rich in carnivores, with 376 specimens identified so far. Remains of Taxidea taxus, Canis latrans, and Spilogale putorius are the most numerous and account for 570 specimens.
