    So SOMETHING has managed to climb over a 7ft fence and into my chicken run during night I know my bad but i had no issues before with this i leave my animals to roam day and night and the animal in question has killed 3 chickens...3 ducks and a Fully grown Tom turkey...what is it! I lock them all up and i'm ok so far at night but now i'm worried he's gonna come at day....when i let them out again..He managed to eat the turkeys head off and drag it but couldn't get it through the fence(chewed a hole into the fence but only got it out 1/2 way...IT just killed and left 2 chickens and 2 ducks...ANd took 1 duck totally and ate it and 1 chicken...I built a trap last night and set it up with some meat so far no luck i'm hoping for tonight! Then it is One dead mofo...

    Were the chickens and ducks missing heads, also? Raccoons are notorious for that.

    ETA - Don't know where you live...bobcats could also do that. Are there any in your area?

    Try baiting with sardines, sounds like racoons to me. Good Luck
