Figured Out Pictures! :--D :--D :--D :--D :--D :--D :--D :--D :--D

This is over at my neighbor's place. He raises rabbit dogs and he runs the puppies in an enclosed 'rabbit proof' pen. The pen is decent sized, perhaps 1/8 acre. The fencing is a 4 1/2 foot high plastic mesh that is supposed to keep rabbits in, and two strands of barbed wire on top to keep predators out. There are also wood corner posts and the mesh is secured at the bottom with large rocks. He has recently had 5 rabbits killed, on some, just the heads were gone, on others, the whole animal was eaten. Several were drug under the brush to be eaten, that and the scat rule out birds of prey. It doesn't appear that anything went under the fence, but it is likely that whatever it is climbed the wood posts or jumped over the fence. There were several of these diggings all going into a hole approxamatly the size of a golf ball. I believe whatever is killing the rabbits is also digging into these mole/shrew runs searching for more food, but I'm not certain. By my description, the scat, and the diggings, do you think you can help me figure out what it is? Jase saw the pictures and he said skunk. Thanks, Nick.
