I looked around for some scat to identify and was not able to see any. I did see one strand of dark grey or black animal hair on the pumpkin and that is all I have to figure out who did this. I know it was definitely not a teenager wanting to smash some pumpkins, this was a hungry animal. What kind of animal though?
I think this happened around 10:30 pm last night when Drew and I heard a loud crash noise. We thought the cats were to blame. After the second crash, I got up and made sure the doors into the house were all properly shut and did not see an animal in our breeze-way or mud room and knew we were safe. At least I learned my lesson from last month's bear poop incident and now all I have to clean up are some pumpkin guts.
