Buzzards are nasty, and I don't know what would eat a part of one.

ok... so taking Husky for a walk this morning I stumbled across a dead Buzzard and a dead Rabbit... spaced about 2 meters apart... Buzzard had its head missing... also had what looked like a blue type of string material on its neck which to me looked like the Buzzards head had been pulled off but this could of just been some random piece of string/plastic material which attached itself to the Buzzard caused by the wind blowing it onto the Buzzard... there were also small indents in the grass which looked like either another animal had come along during the early hours or the Rabbits footprints... now if this was a fox, surely it would have enjoyed the meal which had been left, especially the rabbit, so I'm thinking the small footprints were the rabbits as it was trying to escape the Buzzard but then if so, what took the Buzzards head off??
My GF thinks maybe the Rabbit and the Buzzard were fighting in the road or the Buzzard attacked the Rabbit from above and whilst doing so, a car hit both of them... the driver of said car, got out, cut the head off the Buzzard and then lay both the Rabbit and the Buzzard on the patch of grass... 2 meters apart. Sounds plausible but why rip or cut the head off the Buzzard? and why place them 2 meters apart?
Also... the small footprints... if they belonged to the rabbit, then this incident didn't take place in the road... i'll tell you why... because the footprints were coming from an area which has bushes, not from where the road is and if its a Foxes prints... why leave the Rabbit?
Didn't have my phone to take photos or video and can't be bothered to go back out there in the wind and cold.
Anyway... pretty odd scenario and its a mystery to me...
