Default Help Identifying Animal Remains (warning, pictures of dead animal)

We have not been to our house in Wolfeboro since the summer but were sent these very sad pictures of this dead animal near our front porch this weekend.

Any help identifying it? Or what may have killed it?

Default Fisher Cat

Definitely a Fisher Cat... Looks old...probably died of natural causes / old age. Adult Fishers don't have too many predators. They are mean as can be and will scare off or attack the largest of animals...

It's Always Sunny On Welch Island!!

I too agree that it looks like a Fisher Cat. Contact Fish and Game they may be interested in coming to get it.
