We had a chicken's head pulled off through the fence run last night. The local predators I've seen are fox, coyote, and skunk. I'm thinking it would be a raccoon though I haven't seen one in our area before.

Here is the scat - note is was run over with a drag before we noticed the kill. Any ideas?

Racoon are notorious for reaching through fencing and doing that. They're sneaky night time killers, even though you haven't seen one doesn't mean they are not there. Unless of course you live somewhere racoon don't exist. Foxes and coyotes usually take the whole animal and unless their head can fit through your fencing is more unlikely, skunks go for eggs but will kill chickens. However they have very short toes and legs so reaching and grabbing a good grip is unlikely as well.
