Seen on the Campbell Park Boundary Track this afternoon, the freshish remains of  (I assume) a Brushtail Possum - small clumps of plucked fur scattered over c. 2 metres, and several separate sections of  intestines-  no bones, claws, or head.


I assume a fox would not pluck fur in this way?.  Is the predator likely to have been an eagle or perhaps (powerful) owl?
