Default Air Filter damage

Changed the air filter last night and got suprised by some chunks missing. It's on the outside and not all the way through. No cables or anything rubbing. Any Ideas what would eat away at this filter? On 2012 ec300 notoil filter and oil.

I had used the twin air bio cleaner (powder type) and that stuff ate one filter.
It helps if you read the directions. mix formula THEN submerge filter. LOL

I think I've nicked mine a couple of times pulling it out of the bike by catching it on something like maybe the starter relay or a zip ty or something.

My old kdx wouldn't start one fall. Checked it out and when I got to the air flilter the air box was completely full of dog food. Parked my bike next to were the food was stored and found the buggers winter stash! He went in through the snorkle and didn't hurt anything. He also nibbled on the filter some.

Is it a e-start model? Had a brand new 13 that ate up 2 filters before we figured out that the battery was leaking acid onto the filter.
