Out walking today when I found this fresh dead mole on the path.
So I popped it on top of a nearby wall and took a quick snap to show anybody who has never seen one before.

Re: Expired Mole
But what creature killed it?
Moles are vulnerable if they get caught on the surface so possibly a bird like a crow or buzzard/other hawk? And the bird found it heavy, or it got disturbed and abandoned it's prey. I never saw anything around although I have seen buzzards in the area on other days.
I would have thought a fox would have either eaten or carried it away. Even cats usually bring a mole home, and probably no cats nearby anyway.
