Probably russians. With their tiny tiny submarines.

Likely an anchor from folks who shouldn't have been out there; the "heavily shredded" bit says that it probably wasn't taken (it would likely have been cut, if so), but rather caught and dragged.

Undersea cables get damaged by ships dragging their anchors all the time.
