It is hard to say what it is being shedded by - possibly a raccoon, but it could be several other pests as well.
But, you can try a few things to deter them, such as sprinkling cayenne pepper on the plants, placing citrus peels around the plants to treating the area with predator urea (available at garden nurseries). These methods will deter most mammals that cause this kind of damage.
