    I just had an attack the whole bird was there BUT the rear end and the insides all the way into the rib cage was missing. and Feathers all over the place. After looking at the forum I'm thinking my attack was a opossum or skunk? What do u think?? I'm not sure. all I know is that i'm getting a live trap. Question is what do I do with in once I trap it?

    I think you're right. Probably an opposum, skunks usually leave a bit of odor behind even if they haven't sprayed and I think you would of noticed that.
