    I think you have a really nasty rat on your hands.


    So sorry you're going through this. Those photos were truly horrifying. [​IMG]

    Raccoon(s) reaching through the chicken wire makes sense. Have you thought of changing to galvanized steel mesh?

    Please dont get me wrong, but just the title of your post brought back horrible memories. I cant imagine what your goimg through multiple victims. Im so sorry. I could be wrong of course - Dog knows ive been wrong before. Not looking at any pix. Is there anything a possum could hang by its tail from! A young possum wouldnt leave much by way of claw marks, just as lethal. If you are in central indiana id come shoot it for you. Skin it and tan the hide too. Thats one of my hobbies. And it would be my pleasure. Quetsweyo

    Just peaking at half a picture is telling me that I'm going to be emotionally scarred for life. I am SO sorry that you had to actually see that-even sorrier that one of them was still alive. That is so frightening...This is what nightmares are made of.

    I hope you find out what it is and make sure that the attacker is good and DEAD. Those poor dears...
