Coons and possums will grab chickens. Frankly I kinda agree that looks like he was trying to escape.
That could be. All the blood is on one side of his pen and the hole is on the other. He was sleeping when I checked on him last night. Somehow his feeder ended up in the hole on the opposite side from where it should have been. I looked him over and found a small puncture on his leg. The feathers on one of his wings are a little mangled. Not bad though. There's also feathers up in a tree and he's missing some of his tail feathers that had just finally grown back from molting.He most likely just got stuck and the dog heard him and went to investigate.
