sunflowers heads are being eaten

Hi everyone, I couldn't find the right place to put this. I grew some giant sunflowers in my little backyard, I've been watching them for months, and was getting so excited to see them open up. They are like 8 feet tall now, and the bud of the flower finally formed, and I've just been waiting for it to open. I planted 4 in a row, and they were all doing great, and now 2 out of the 4 flower buds have been eaten off by something. What in the world would do this? I am so bummed! All that waiting, and something just snaps off the top of it? :*(

Moose can easily reach 8 feet and eat your sunflower heads.
