    This is more of a 'show and tell' type thread than a C&C. I came home yesterday to something that I didn't think I'd ever see in my lifetime. It's too bizarre to NOT show anyone lol.

    This is what we came home from work to yesterday. Not sure how this happened but there must have been an epic battle while we were out. This poor Raven (at least, its what we think) somehow got his head lodged in between the fence posts and never had a chance.

    Whatever happened, it can't be a 'good omen' to have this happen in your yard lol.

    Wow, I've never seen anything like that before.

    I would have been a bit creeped out if I found that scene in my backyard.
    It looks like it struggled for a little while, and even messed down the fence.

    I'd bury it with salt :shock:

    We had a little birdie CSI going on in my backyard at 1 AM last night with the drunk neighbors lol. There are some remnants of some type of blood or blueberry (there is a berry type tree right above this) and we were searching for hints all around (another dead animal, scratches, etc) but we found nothing.

    The fence board has a space at the top, so it somehow slid down. There are feather remnants on the inside of those boards too.

    *shrugs shoulders*

    It definitely struggled. After looking at it again, there is blood in a circular pattern around it. It must have been flailing it's wings around and beating them up to bloody them.

    Maybe it kind of tripped or accidentally got its head caught on the top of the fence and then slipped down over time trying to get out of the situation by its movement. Certainly not a good way to go.

    Sad.

    That's exactly what I was thinking.
