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
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
