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
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
