I went out to the coop today only to find one of my girls lying in the run.
I suspect a raccoon as it is the most abundant predator in the area, but I'm going to need your help to identify it so we can catch or deter it.
The chicken's insides are completely gone. The predator left only the neck, ribcage, wings, and head. I have some pictures if you need reference but I must warn you this is a real dead chicken so if you're not up to seeing that side of nature, then don't look:
Flipped her over:
I would appreciate any advice for capture/ elimination of the predator.. or at least a guess on the Species in the poll above.
Thank you for any consideration!
