I was leaving my property on Sunday and noticed this cedar tree all torn up. The highest scrapes/scratches were almost 6 foot high and the lowest about a foot from the ground. What animal do you think caused it? Chupacabra and black panthers already ruled out as they are not generally found in East Texas. Thanks for any insight.

There are no axis on my ranch (or black bears that I know of). I've never seen a buck rub at the six foot height so I am going with porcupine.

If your in far north east Texas, I would say definately say bear as they are coming into Texas from all bordering states. We have sightings within 10 miles of us in cass county

Porcupine as well if those are just surface scratches. A bear will leave deeper claw marks and you sometimes would find bear hair in the tree.
