believe this to be carcass left over from a fox kill, as meaty parts eaten and remainder let, also eaten in situ and not taken away. Believe remains to be a magpie.

Fox kill

Certainly looks like a fox kill, for some reason they often bite the head off then carry the body to somewhere else to pluck and eat it. It appears the head is missing here, was it?
