Quote:I agree with this. When I first saw the pictures my thought was "raptor". They will shred their prey like that. I think you actually have had 2 separate predators. You mentioned catching a very large rat? I think your first attack probably came from a rat- they will bite young birds and steal eggs. Then your cat dispatched that predator and you had no more problems until now. The second attack does not sound consistent with the first- different MO.
