A predator killed a couple of my ducks last nite. When I went to the barn they were both headless. Traps set for tonight!! Im thinking its a opossum. Any tips ??

Opossums are more the scavenger type. Do you have coyotes?

This was in a closed up barn at night. Doors were still shut so I dont think it was a raccoon or coyote. I dont know how they would get in.If they got in during the day when doors were open I would see them. Everythings pretty open in there. no holes or anything around barn or doors. Nothing happened last nite..I have a camera set up so I can see and hear everything. Nothing in trap yet either. I spent most of last nite watching and listening!! Not alot of sleep. Frustrating!!
