Suburban St. Louis but yard backs to park. Have very secure coop and small run, but our six 15 week old chickens have access to a less secure chain link run when we open an additional trap door (during the day when we're home or not gone long). By less secure, I mean it's hardware cloth attached to the chain link up 3 feet, buried 12 inches, but top is only chicken wire to keep hawks out). Chickens have been in coop two months. This morning, husband found a gutted and beheaded adult rabbit carcass in the FRONT yard (dragged under my car and left). He said did not look like rest of carcass had been eaten. What does this sound like? I'm thinking it's too coincidental in terms of us getting chickens a few months ago--haven't ever had decapitated critters left around. We are going today to buy a trap but would like to have a plan of action if the culprit is, say, the neighbors cat as opposed to a raccoon. Haven't seen any foxes, raccoons, or feral cats but I'm sure they're around. Ideas on rabbit head eating and disemboweling predators please? Also attached pic of setup in case anyone has suggestions for reinforcements. No sign of anything digging around. Ugh.
