Why Would Someone Do This?

I came outside to this. I don't know if this was done when I had it in the shop recently, or if it was done by someone in my apartment complex. But I know it is recent and was not like this a few weeks ago. I don't understand why... or for what purpose anyone would do this. Can anyone here think of any reason - whether it be a mechanic doing this in the shop, or someone trying to break into my car to access the bolt that was revealed below - why???

Thanks in advance.

You're partially right, not someone though. Sure looks like squirrel teeth marks to me. The acorn is a dead give away

Well, I guess a squirrel could have done it trying to get the acorn. But the acorn is just sitting there easily accessible. I could have removed it but was in a hurry. It does look like teeth marks. Oh my gosh. If this was just a squirrel trying to get an acorn... Wacko squirrel!!!

Wasn't trying to get the acorn he was trying to store it for the winter in a safe place, then you came along and spoofed him before he had a chance leaving his acorn behind. He'll be back to finish the job unless you set a trap.

Just be thankful he didn't chew your wires instead
