Squirrel woes...really sad

for the squirrel. I guess my other post didn't take but I need to know what kind of predator in suburban NJ will store it prey say in a storage shed corner under cover. I admit the shed was left open last night- not a typical occurrence.

I went out this morning to put the grill back into the shed but when I moved the grill cover there lay a headless dead squirrel. I would say its a fresh kill the insects hadn't found it yet and the flesh was still bright red. I found its front leg but not its head.

Which leads to another question? How to dispose of the carcass responsibly? I don't think it should sit around waiting for garbage pickup.

truly skeeved out on the bayshore,

Bury it a couple of feet. Perhaps a cat?

I hope I can dig that far down. Thoughts of zombie squirrels will keep me indoors tonight...

I did find some gore on the house way high up. After reading a few other posts, I think it was a bird of some sort.

chuck it in the neighbor's yard. And if the neighbor tells you 'bout the headless squirrel he found, mention the hawk you saw that was as big as paul bunion.
