Very cool. Those cuts are most likely the result of getting caught in barbed-wire, or chain-link, while trying to force it's way under the fence. If nothing else, you have a test subject for food plots and scent control! See what he really likes besides bread. molasses, honey, grapes, persimmons, acorns, popcorn, ect. you have a rare opportunity for research.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
