Today I noticed that a piece of RG-58 that's feeding a Beverage antenna for HF was in two pieces. On further inspection it turned out to be cut. On further inspection I think it's actually chewed by some animal.
At the risk of this post being deleted for being vastly off-topic I think that some fellow hams out there have also come in very close contact with nature's hungry cable chewers.
Can anyone of you identify whether this was malicious or just a rodent of sorts?
The cable is out in a paddock with spikey shrubs and grass. No cattle around but I did see a horse at one stage. Plenty of mice and falcons too. I live on the East Coast of Australia so it could be cockatoos but the cut marks don't look obvious to me.
