No, Another stolen egg!!! Why?! πŸ˜žπŸ˜£πŸ˜–πŸ˜«πŸ˜©

We found lone egg exactly like this one in our garden. My mom hit it with her shovel while she was digging and it cracked in half. I checked the texture of the shell and they’re too large and not circular enough to be a turtle egg and they were not leathery like a snake egg. I’m 98% sure it’s a Wild Turkey egg, but I wish I knew what kept stealing the eggs and where the nest was! Anybody have any ideas on who the nest predator might be? The egg I found today was whole, with no signs of damage, except the stench was unmistakeable. There is no way it’s still viable. Whatever the predator is prefers to bury its prey in loose dirt. I’m completely baffled! Please help!
