    My grandmother had something similar looking and it turned out to be a rabbit nesting! That thing tore up her yard like nothing I have ever seen!

    I suggested trapping or shooting the thing but she lives in the city. She ended up putting moth balls all around the area and it seemed to have worked because the rabbit is long gone, at least for the time being.

    Good luck. Hopfully it wont destroy the entire lawn before you take care of the problem.

    Could be raccoons digging for grubs.

    I used to have something like that in my neighbors yard. It was armadillos.

    If it were into the dirt a little more I would say it was a wild turkey. They tear the snot out of my lawn.

    Same thing in my yard, always happened at night.

    Rabbit, opossum, coon, skunk, take your pick at which one.
