This morning, when my husband went to let the girls out, he found a decapitated rabbit INSIDE of the fenced run. The fence is 6 feet tall and both gates were closed and locked. We can't figure this out. We have not had a predator attack before but have seen coyotes in the area, but not recently. No skunks, raccoons, etc. Our land does open up in back to a mountain range and there have been cougars sighted in the past. We moved the cattle home to winter two days ago from the range, so that may have brought something in. This was a wild rabbit and quite large. We have two cats who were not inside of the run with the rabbit, but were at their usual post next to the back door waiting to be fed when my husband went out. It was our coldest night yet (about 17 degrees) but something had to jump/climb our fence (it isn't covered) and kill a rabbit. We have the girls locked up at night inside of two barns and nothing seems amiss here. I need to leave for work within the hour and am worried about the possible return of this animal. The girls are free ranging (my husband hadn't found the rabbit until after he had let them out and was giving them scratch). Will it return during the day?
