Our dogs usually don't say a word but for about a week have been barking a lot at night. Finally early yesterday morning we saw a skunk not too far from the runs. This afternoon as we were airing out we noticed the skunk dead in the yard. When I went to check it out it's head was completely gone. What the heck did that??? We're completely fenced with hog wire all the way around so the size of intruder should be limited. We have a cat that's an agressive hunter and get a lot of strays across the property. There was no scent so the skunk hadn't sprayed when it was attacked. The dogs are always confined so they couldn't have done it. We have some big groundhogs around but I wouldn't think they're the killers. Any ideas what's lurking on our property?
