My chicken coop is secured with chicken wire top to bottom. A night in December, something gnawed through the wire and got inside. I found my one and only Golden Campine dead, but with no visible marks, only a tuft of feathers beside her. The hole the predator gnawed was about six inches long. Does anyone know what animal would kill and not eat or try to remove the chicken from the coop? It has not returned since--thank goodness.
