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
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
