    Hi Hannah
    Definitely a Raccoon, I don't know any other predator that will reach through the wire and grab birds. Also, those prints are raccoon prints.

    Definitely coon. Add hardware cloth to the chicken wire. They cannot reach through it.

    Usually if the head is missing it is a raccoon.

  9. Coons make a Mell of a Hess when eating chickens not to mention a coon track at the scene of the crime.
