What would kill a box turtle?

I was running my little river line this morning and found a dead box turle with the legs chewed on; who would the culprit possibly be? At first I thought bird of prey but the more I think about that possibility the less likely it seems . . otter or mink are the only other animals I could picture doing that . . ??

I think a raccoon could get into a turtle with a little effort.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.
