Something ate my propane hose...

Camping in Boone National Forest last weekend.
Hooked up my 6í hose between my propane bottle and camp stove like always, cooked dinner, all good.
Next day return after a day of riding motorcycles and immediately smell propane...yes Iíd left the bottle on but never a problem before.
Immediately noticed a couple small holes where something had apparently chewed thru the hose where it was lying on the ground.
Replaced hose with friends brand new never used hose, all good.
Next day, same exact thing!!
Iíve camped all over (15 states and Canada) and have never experienced this. No sign of ground critters before or after the problem.
Iím baffled! Any clues??

I have heard of squirrels gnawing on propane hoses.

I have not heard of Boone National Forest. But squirrels love propane hoses.

First thanks for your service!!
Second, was my first guess but literally never saw/heard one in 4 days (doesnít mean they werenít hiding and waiting to eat my hose!)
Thanks...

My guess just didnít see any. Makes me worried about when the rig is parked at the house (I know I have mice nearby).

Racoon or possum too. Many rubber & plastic coverings contain a soy bye product, tasty to critters.
