It would seem that the animal was eating signal crayfish. Could it be an otter?

I'm not sure if you have otters in your area but they are partial to creyfish. However, there is a lot of fur in this spraint and I am sure it is mink as they are also partial to creyfish but also eat mammals; something otters rarely do.

You could smell it, otter spraints smell of jasmine tea.

If you want to put up an identification of mink I'll agree to it.
