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.
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
What do you do with those empty nylon feed bags or dog & cat food bags? Can you say recycle? I use them for target practice for the youngsters. Take your empty shopping bags, stuff them into an empty nylon feed bag. You can also use old clothing or rags, (but put them in the bottom so it doesnt get top heavy). When your bag is full, fold the top over, punch some holes into the top and zip tie the top shut. Paint, draw, paste, or have the kids decorate their new target. Set it out 10 or 20...
