Our neighbour heard an animal (apparently) screaming at about 3am, looked out and couldn't see anything, but in the morning we found this foot and a rib cage about the size of a small orange in our back garden. We wondered if it is a hedgehog, and what could have eaten it. We do have badgers. There were no signs of any prickles.

Dead hedgehog

Hard to say what did it, however, strange there were no prickles left but a ribcage was.

Badgers and foxes skin hedgehogs and stoats/weasels are more likely to drag prey to a quiet location. They all feed on hedgehogs.
