Animal creature on side of road
Pete writes, "Approximately 11:30 in the pm when I'm going home from a friends house... I'm driving down a pretty busy street when I see this strange animal come out into the road.. at first I thought it was a baby deer, so I slowed down almost to a stop when it picked up road kill with its mouth and dragged it into the farm on the side of the road... it was too dark to see where it went so I drove on... I drove maybe a block when my curiosity got the best of me and I made a U turn.. luckily I had my Olympus D-560 zoom digital camera so I took a few pictures blindly and hoped I got it... I came home plugged it in and there it is... its a bad shot cause u can only see the back but its still it...it has a long flat busy tail, it is obviously a carnivore, its approximately 15-20 inches tall and 25-35 inches long, its ears are strait like that of a deer it has deer like legs, a dog like body, with a black patch on its back like a German Shepherd... I don't know what kind of animal that is or if it has a name if you do know its name or have any info please e-mail me back."


Very interesting description, very intreging, facinating creature, no double about it

but....

does anyone else know what this (not very uncommon) animal is?

looks like a fox to me, the tail doesn't look bushy enough in the picture but in the description he said that it had a very bushy tail.  Its kind of sad that no one knows what a fox looks like...

I know its kind of an odd first post but it really bugged me for some reason.  I am a huge beleiver that there are things out there that we don't know about and go through phases where i am just obsessed with cryptozoology but this just seemed different to me and it wasn't until i disregarded the strage description of it that i realized what it was.

I thought it looked like a coyote or fox.  I dont think it looks like anything unusual.  I think the photo in the first article on that page is a swarm of bees or hornets.  Do you see the large nest in that first photo hanging in the tree?  

I understand what you are saying.  It is pretty obvious that it is some kind of fox, coyete or wild dog.

I would agree that it's a fox other than the creature in the paranormal gallery submission seems to have a differently shaped head.  It looks more to me like a misshapen head of a donkey.  The eyes seem to be located close together near the top of the head and the ears are shaped like a bears'.   What is your reasoning to say it's definitely a fox?

Living in rural Georgia all my life, I've had plenty of encounters with fox, coyotes, and all manner of wild dogs. To be quite honest, the creature in the photo doesn't appear to be any of the above to me. I could be mistaken in this instance, but if that is some sort of wild dog, then either the photo is heavily distorted, or there's something wrong with that animal.

This is why we posted the photo...because nobody can say for certain what kind of a creature this is.  It does resemble a fox or coyote...almost.  wink.gif

It doesnt say what country or state these pictures were taken in.  That would be helpful to know in identifying what it possibly could be.  It looks to me like the animal's eyes are closed.  I still think it is a fox with mange or some other illness.  Mange makes animals look strange.  Here is a link with pictures of foxes with mange: http://www.nfws.org.uk/mange/index.htm

It doesn't look misshapen at all to me.... a perfectly normal fox (or possibly coyote) trotting off with his yummy roadkill.  wink.gif

I think it looks like a cat carrying a largish bird that it's caught.
I more think it's a cat than a fox or coyoted because of the shape of the shoulders and back as well as the slim longish tail.

The top picture titled " Black Spinning Thing" reminds me very much of a sugar glider (flying squirrel *shudders*)

The picture in question does look very fox-like though. Perhaps the cap was taken during shedding season, or the poor baby is mal nutritioned or has mange.  Maybe it's back looks all hunched up because certain predators take a protective stance when it comes to guarding their food.

My husband says it looks like a rabid wombat.  ermm.gif

It looks like a wallaby to me. It's in the kangaroo family I believe.
Just my opinion though.
