    10 headless chickens!!

    Hi Marshall, I live just along the road from you at Kirkhill, I would say it's a mink not a pinemarton. There is a lot of pinemarton kicking about in our neck of the woods... If you need a hand send me a PM

    Cheers Andy

    Hi same here not far from you, could be a fox as they tend to chew head off, would expect to find a couple missing as well, pine martin would leave puncture marks on the back of the neck behind the head, pluck a few to check, mink would kill same as pine martin, so fox is my best bet, or maybe a badger.

    My money would be on a fox, that's a lot of heads for a mink to take off, had an arc full of ducks loose their legs to a fox when I was a kid, just pulled them under the side and chewed them off, left some of them alive with stumps poor little buggers!!!!
