    It can go in a normal live trap and steal the bait without setting it off, even stealing bait from three rat traps we set out but still didn’t get caught by them. It got into the coup killed a single chicken and dragged it away. Any ideas

    I imagine it varies by what part of the world you live in your local climate.

    In the midwest of the USA where I live it is usually raccoons. If nothing else because they are clever and their population is high, especially in sub/urban areas.

    Could be any of the weaselly slinky critters, coon or a skunk. Depends on where you live.

    Are you able to set a trail cam out? Maybe borrow one from a buddy?

    I’d say raccoon. If it only took one you’re lucky. Sometimes they’ll kill everything in the coup for fun and leave them all behind.

    Raccoon for sure, they got to the point they wouldnt even move the chickens and left only beak and feet.

    Probably a racoon but don’t overlook chupacabras.

    Around here we have owl, raven, hawk, fisher, racoon, weasel, and fox that like chicken.

    Might get a foothold trap and put it out near the coop after the chickens are put up
