I vote for a cat. My kitties have left similar messes before.

My understanding, although I don't renember the source, is that a well fed predator animal such as a pet cat will kill a small animal and eat some of it but leave the organs.
A stray or feral predator will consume the organs as they are the most nutritious bits.
I can't vouch for the veracity of this however.
There is no theory of evolution. Evolution is a fact. The theory is of how it happened.
