Yes those are tomatoes in the engine of my husbands truck. He found this prize yesterday when he went out to start his truck and it wouldn't start. Naturally he lifted the hood and found this. A pack rat had gotten in there and chewed almost every wire and put tomatoes in it. We have had some problems with pack rats in vehicles before but never this bad. A pack rat put dog food in the heater of a car once and when you turned the heat on you could hear it popping like pop corn and smelled like dog food when you got out.
It took my husband all day to get the wiring back together that is how much the pack rat chewed. When my husband went to the parts store the man told him that someone else was just in and had the same thing happen. I just couldn't believe how destructive this little guy was. These two photos are only some of the damage. Makes me wonder if we will have a bad winter. It seems a bit early in the season for pack rats to be doing this but I guess this little guy is a tomato lover. We had been trying to figure out what was getting our tomatoes off the vine and scattering them all over, now we know. He also had some tomatoes hidden in under the truck and in another place as well. Just one of the 'perks' of living in the country. LOL
PS. My husband just checked under the hood and the thing is still there and he is chewing wires again. Hubby is trying to figure out how to get him out of where ever it is he is hiding in the truck!
