Does Skunkape kill its prey like this?

This was from

Today Kevin spent a good part of the day assisting Tim Fasano with trail-cam recovery. It was a beautiful day for a hike in the swamp and surrounding woods.
Upon finding one of the trail-cams they were both excited to see that the camera had picked up 93 images!

Please log on to to see these photos when they are uploaded.

During the hike Kevin found a couple of different odd things. The first thing I found was the skull of some small animal. At this time I am not sure what it is but I am sure there is someone out there who can identify it. Please help me as I am not a trained biologist!

The second is the back half of a hog. It was cleanly severed in half with only a small tear near the ribs. There was no blood on the ground and there was no sight of the front half of the pig.

I don't think this was done by a person as who would purposely leave the ham and ribs? It appeared to be twisted in half after its' back was broken. I don't know if a bear would kill like this or not but I am hopping that there might be someone who can shed some insight
