Based on your description, I am not certain which animal is at work, since it could also be deer! You might try some of the commercial animal repellents or a homemade concoction of garlic and/or red pepper. Sometimes a pet dog or cat can act as a deterrent. You might also consider a fence if it seems this is going to be an ongoing problem.
