Yellow Jacket thief

Unburied yellow jacket hive
Much to my surprise I discovered a nicely dug hole, about the size of a basketball, in our yard.  It uncovered an underground yellow jacket's nest.

In researching this on the internet a few possible suspects were provided; fox, skunk or a raccoon.  We've never seen a skunk in the neighborhood, but on occasion have observed fox and raccoon.  Whatever animal did this I tip my hat to.  Those yellow jackets are notorious stingers, and have the capacity to sting more than once.

Any guesses from readers about the yellow jacket digger?
