It was overnight locked in there pen. I’m wondering if it had died and the chickens did this???
Check the coop for any signs of break ins. If it is a predator, they WILL come back just like @cmom said. When we had the dog attack, they came back for 4-5 days in a row, just make sure they didn’t come back(if it is a predator)

I have no idea what predator you are dealing with.
Agree that a game cam can help you see what's lurking about.

Might not be a bad idea to set a cage trap, usually will catch Raccoon or Possum if that's what's getting in. Don't trap unless you are ready and willing to dispatch.
