I woke up this morning and found a patch (30x50ft.) of lawn torn up. Is this from voles or what?? What can I do about it. Same thing happened last year. Looks like a herd of horses or deer went through. Unable to upload picture.

Beltrami County Minnesota turf skunk

This is skunk damage, they are looking for grubs and earthworms. The only way to eliminate it is to kill the grubs & earthworms. If you rake the area (you can even top seed) the grass will recover.
