    Had one bird that all was left was bone, feathers and head. Other bird was killed chewed around neck. These are 10 12 week olds. Them a small full grown young muscovey was attacked around her neck and beak has teeth marks in it. The Duck is still alive and has been treated. We have killed a possom in there before and just trapped and got rid of a coon. I have an electric wire on the top of the fence, which I forgot to turn on last night. AUGH. I'm thinking a possom again. Don't weasels claimb and just wipe them all out???

    Yes a weasel will slit the birds throat drink the blood eat the innards and sometimes take the head but you might also have an owl getting them they will swoop down pluck the bird and eat everything but bones.
