Just yesterday it was hanging

Just yesterday it was hanging there, the last cucumber on the vine. Today it's a bunch of little pieces, not even appreciated by the varmint that stole it. Would raccoons be this dainty and leave anything behind? Since I'm not sure exactly what raided my urban garden, I'm calling it a varmint.

Research reveals a little about what varmint hunting entails - 'specialized custom guns, loading your own ammo, using highly-developed bullets that do as little external damage as possible, long-range sights and scopes, hiding in damp and uncomfortable places using high-tech camouflage'. It may not sound like my usual peaceable approach but I really wanted that last cucumber. Varmints, watch out!
