Hey! WBal-Channel 11 found my pet Abaguchie!

Don't worry, it's basically harmless, except for the fact that I "think" it feeds on small children?

Lost and Found

Hyote, that's pretty good. I would have gone for coyena.

Probably a dog that has lost some of its coat for some reason.

It does have some hyena looking features, however this creature is grazing on grass! I've never seen a coyote or dog graze on grass and I doubt that hyena's do either.

If anyone hears anything more about this, please post again. It sure is an odd looking thing.

I was thinking dog too... but the tail is thick all the way down, more like a cat than a dog. The shoulders and head sure do look like a Hyena! It looks like it could be a Lemur of some kind. Probably an exotic pet that got sick, lost some of it's hair, and was let loose to die in the woods - but survived.

It wasn't actually grazing. Looked to be eating bugs in the grass, not eating the grass.

Those are my two cents.

Hey I got an idea in about two days I could drive up there use my bow and put this thing on the ground then we can all take a look at it. Since it is in a resdential area there would be no charge as this animal could pose a threat to little kids. What ya think? HAHAHA Big smile
