It's quite obviously coax. It was cut late in the afternoon, and no  
services have responded. The trailer park management has never heard of  
that size line being used. Where it cut it, the line appears to run from  
some place in the center of the yard. Consider, right next to this garden  
plot is another which has already been completely turned over shovel-blade  
depth, so unless it's deeper there, it can't have crossed that.

The other end runs around back of the trailer, the master bedroom end. Our  
own cable service runs much thinner coax and it parallels the far side of  
our trailer.

If nothing happens today, I'm going to dig up a bit more of it tomorrow,  
because it appears to run almost the length of the garden bed I'm digging.  
There is a phone junction box standing outside of the garden plot, but  
it's not in line with this cable. We were specifically told the utilities  
were too deep to be affected by this sort of garden digging. Puzzling,
