Raccoon got into my large egg!
Somehow a raccoon knocked off the green ceramic cap and got into the egg and ripped apart a file drip pan. The grid was not in unfortunately. Nice trail of hair and shredded foil all over. It even opened the bottom event somehow and scraped out some ash probably looking for tasty morsels. Large muddy claw marks all around. I couldn't even make this up nor can I believe it. He must have been very hungry. No idea how I didn't hear this with egg so close to the bedroom.
Doing a burn off now to clean it up. How do I lock down the green cap? Maybe that's what I get for leaving the cover off but something tells me he would have ripped it apart.
