frass?

Asked June 19, 2019, 6:10 AM EDT

Can you identify the critter that left this frass? As you see, it was found on a zinnia plant. It is inside a fenced garden ( 9 foot) but with some small gate openings. I have seen rabbits in there but understand this is not rabbit frass. No signs of damage. Thanks!

This looks like the scat may be something other than a bird but we cannot say for sure. It may be a type of rodent. Take a look at the scat key http://icwdm.org/Inspection/Scat1.aspx
