Somthing keeps digging up my pet Graves

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, it's been a while since I posted on the forum but I have a question. I have 2 pet Graves in the back of my yard, 1 rabbit and 1 duckling. They have been buried for about 2 months. Just a day ago, I noticed holes where they were buried. Like somthing was digging them up. I thought it was my ducks, but we put them in last night, and the holes got deeper so it couldn't of been them. Also, I don't know if this is related, but about 3 weeks ago I saw a dead duck in my yard ( which was not one of mine ). And I sew what looks like dog poop almost everyday near the duck pens. I t couldn't of been a dog because I have a 5 ft fence. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

It sounds as if a fox may be visiting your yard.

Worse case scenario... Your pets are digging themselves out of their graves. :ep 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: I always put chicken wire and medium sized rocks over graves to prevent this problem.

It could be a coyote or fox. I see coyotes running along the top of my 6' block wall around my property all the time so a 5' fence would be a walk in the park. I'd think a coyote or fox would've successfully dug the animals' bodies up in short order though.
