I'd say skunk. Had one drag 2 beaver carcasses across my yard one night (60 yards) to a patch of stacked logs. I thought it was a badger. I set a foothold and caught the skunk that next night.
Then last fall I had 6 goose carcasses in the yard, woke up and went to throw them in the bush down the road and they were all gone!
Followed some feathers to that patch of logs. Set a foothold there again and caught another skunk. Ticked me off cause I had to move the dang logs around in order to grab all the carcasses. Not fun putting your hands in holes reaching for guts not knowing if there's another animal down there! Lol

If it was a owl you would think the heads would be gone from the critters!

Sure a trapper dint throw carcasses there and then something dint pick them clean? Ravens, crows, eagles, turkey vultures all would eat. If a mammal ate they spread bones out, haul off pieces.

Should be owl pellets around if it's a owl (looks like a dried white turd but is a ball of hair and bones) that they cannot digest often found under a perch area where they feed.
