Critter or Bad Young'un?

Something has happened to this tree in my front yard. Something that happened during the night Sunday night. At first I thought it was that bad little kid next door with the barking dog but now that I look at it closer, I think this was probably done by a critter. A raccoon, most likely. Have any of you ever seen anything like this before?

It almost looks like it was hit by something, a car or a bolt of lightning. It looks bad!! When I first saw it Monday morning as I headed to work, in my almost-drunken-still-half-asleep stumble to my car, all I saw was that ORANGE GLOW. I swear, I thought my tree was on fire!

I went to Lowe's and got some tree wound sealant and put on it today. This is a HUGE tree and I sure don't want it to die.


  1. It looks like the Virgin Mary!!!
    just kidding.... :) wouldn't be awesome though? :)
    That is strange...hope u figure out the culprit.

  2. Daddy said it has been hit downward from an airplane part or something from the sky. Daddy said look around the yard around the tree and see if there is any indentions or in your neighbors yard.It don't look like lightning, because there are no burn marks. Hope you figure it out. Love, mama and daddy
