I had the miserable experience of coming upon a Little Raven in the midst of killing and eating a very young Greylag gosling. So much yellow down strewn about on the ground, I mistook it for fur from a weird possum. Death by pecking; memorably horrid.
The raven took it away to feed its youngster eventually
