I agree Mr. Wells.

Any tame dog.

'Coons will never take the hint. They will not leave you alone. They don't understand subtlety. It's probably one reason why they flourish in so many diverse neighborhoods. They will always rustle up some grub.
Communities install storm drains to prevent untreated sewage discharges during big rain events, but storm drains are also critter subways, and they lead straight up from the river to every part of town. It's protected access to and from your garbage bags and cans. Driving along any street at night you can see 'coons everywhere hauling themselves up out of storm drain grates, clocking in for the night shift and going to work.

I've seen pictures of the Indians in the mts. Of Peru using the face parts of a chicken for voodoo magic and I have been in the same shops in San Antonio that people from south of the border frequent. Also a man from San Antonio was killed at night when he went outside to investigate at Big Bend-possibly by an Apache girl from Oklahoma since that was Apache and one came around me but I was quiet. They can roam around there.

Here they had a problem with tame dogs ripping the skin off the cranium of humans out for a walk. Skinning the head alive. Bloody.

Sorry for your loss man. Once a coon finds a food source it will keep coming back and it will find a way to get to it.

No cats around there? When cats get one of my chickens, that's what it looks like.

OH.. it is on! Time to take the gloves off.

After 3 days of talking to Apple people in Gautamala, El Salvador, Ca or wherever, I was assured I would sign UPS for my $1,300.00 Air2 iPad. So yesterday after returning my mangled iPad, the kind police helped move a lovely young fox from the road to the high grass and trees. And that was by Nieman Marcus and La Cantera Parkway nice area in San Antonio. In Terlingua after dark, I was amazed to see the great abundance of all kinds of wild animals frolicking on the main two lane road. And during the day I heard a hiss/snort and realized a deer was under a bush in the empty desert.

Remember those children's stories about the fox visiting the hen house. The raccoons were fat from range food. This is such a mystery. I hope your cameras catch something. Keep your gun handy.

Lynx and small wild cats there could do that. Dogs can bend chain link. There are cayote dogs.

Quietly leash walking my beloved wolf dog, she turned her head and quickly killed a chicken without a mark and kept on walking. But dogs will devour small birds like mocking birds and parakeets. Wolf dogs can break in and out of cars and houses. I suppose a small bear could too.

A skunk got into my coop one night this spring and killed 5 of my chickens. Skunks don't eat them, just rip them apart and kill them.

I was afraid they would be back. Sorry about that. Was that one of the chickens in the coup or the original roosters? Now maybe you can show us how to tan a Racoon skin and make a REAL cap.

I have a chicken magazine that shows the top 12 pretators for chickens. It tells the time as in day or night and the injury to the bird. It shows that skunks will eat the entrails/abdomens and leave the rest. I would suspect skunk. But that is on the practical side of this issue. On the emotional side...I am heartbroken for you. From the evidence it is one of your girls. I also have dominecker hens or bardrocks whatever they call the black and white ones. You will have to lock them back up. No more free ranging unless you are there. Just do a wall in your coop to keep the boys away.
