From a wildlife standpoint - hawks, owls, foxes, any wild cat - any
predator, actually, will eat a vole if it can catch it.  That's why
voles travel in those shallow tunnels just under the mulch or leaf
litter - to avoid getting caught by hawks and such.

A hunting cat will catch them.  My mighty hunter loves voles, but
she's been campused for a couple of years on account of her untiring
desire to bite birds...so the durn voles have repopulated my garden
to the immense detriment of my hostas!  Blasted critters!
