My neighbor [female] swears thats what happened to my stretched out hose.
I let her install a large garden in my backyard and told her she could use my water. She claims that a yote was in the yard the other night. Now, it hasn'r rained at all lately so theres no standing water anywhere. The river is about 400 yards away. The hose does look like its been chewed. But even when I lived in Nevada i never heard of a "dog" chewing up a garden hose to get at the water.
We do have them in the area along with other vermin such as possums and coons.
If there are squirrels in the area that's more then likely the culprit. We go through 3-4 hoses a year because of the little bastards. Although it has gotten better since I have set out a water bowl for them. Well that and I like them in stew.
Yes they chew on our drip line in the vineyards and orchards. Either its for the water or some plastics (what a few people told me) have a taste or mineral they like. All i know is yes they do chew on my drip line.
Beer if proof there IS a God, and that he wants us to be happy.

Yes, that sums it up.
She wanted to expand her garden but has too much shade. I offered to let her put one im my yard [ajoining yards]. She got her brother to plow it and disk it. Its close to 3,000 sq.ft. I get all the corn and maters I want and any other shit she plants.
Bears are bad about chewing rubber things. They will raise hell on some four wheeler tires.
