Some unknown animal has killed over a third of my chickens! It comes in and kills them each night. It has gotten at least 15 and I set out traps every night and I fix all holes immediately but I don´t know what to do! It kills them and flips them over then rips out their breast and stomach and I dont know what it eats out of them. Some of them don´t have heads but my roosters just completely dissipated. We caught a 35 pound raccoon last night and we thought that that was the source of our problem but three more were dead when I came back this evening. The corpses are spread out through my barn and a lot of the time my chickens roost on the rafters of my barn so the predator must be either able to climb or gets them in the day while I´m not around! I´m scared I will lose more to this animal so please help me if you can!
