Strange Animal Caught on Camera

A strange animal spotted in Harrison County is caught on camera.

A similar sighting in Angelina County was reported a few months ago to the Department of State Health Services.

Veterinary officials believe it is a coyote that's suffering from hair loss. They say it may be because of mange, caused by mites in the hair follicles.

Julie Tam, reporting.



What Is This Creature?

What kind of animal is this?

"Looks like a hyena or a greyhound, a messed up dog, ohh a horrible dog," says TJC Student Lyndon Gilford.

A man in Harrison County snapped this picture a few days ago. We showed it to you on a recent news cast and hundreds of you logged online to tell us what you thought it was. Answers varied, everything from a Peruvian hairless dog, to a naked fox, to an Australian dingo. Today, we got a similar reaction when we showed passersby the picture.

"I would say a cross between a jackal and a grey hound," said one woman.

"An ugly animal, I don't know a horse," says another man.

"It looks kind of messed up," said yet another.

Some of you e-mailed us claiming this animal was something called "a Chupacabra". That means "goat sucker". It's a mythical creature in Puerto Rican folk lore. A google search revealed pictures of what one may look like.

James Wright, a zoonosis vet with the Texas Department of State Health Services doubts this animal is a Chupacabra.

"So if I see this out in the country side I feel it is a canine and not from outer space," says Wright.

He thinks the animal is a type of dog or coyote suffering from severe mange.

"Most probably from demodectic mange," says James Wright. He says it causes the hair to fall out very badly.

Wright says this creature closely resembles one found in near Lufkin in Angelina County a few months ago. Experts believe it was a canine with severe mange. So for Wright the mystery has been solved, he says, the animal from Harrison county is a canine, but you can decide for yourself.


Also ich denke das es sich am wahrscheinlichsten um einen haarlosen Canid (Koyote, Fuchs (mein Favourit, da die abgerundeten Ohrspitzen) oder Hund) handeln könnte.

Etwas ähnlich ungewöhnliches wurde schon vor Monaten ebenfall Fotografiert....
  Mystery Creature Lurks In Baltimore County

GLYNDON, Md. -- A mystery animal is on the loose in Baltimore County and not even the experts can pin down what it is.

A Glyndon man found a way to secretly record the beast while it grazed in his yard. For a while it was just lurking in the woods watching the Wroe family until the Wroes started watching it.

Jay Wroe: "My truck was parked here, started getting in my truck. I kind of saw it there where the sunlight is and said what in the world is that?"

Jacob Wroe: "It looked so weird to me. I didn't know what it was."

Wanting to get a better look at the beast stalking his family, Jay Wroe put technology to work for him.

Jay Wroe: "The next day, I hooked up just portable motion detectors, and put them down back in the woods there."

The trap worked.


Jay Wroe: "Very bizarre. I went and got my father and cousin and they came and looked at it and their reactions were pretty much the same -- what in the world are we looking at?"

More than a month after the first sighting, the creature has become a neighborhood regular and showing up often.

Kim Carlsen: "It comes to our house. It's been up in the woods for a while and it comes up through the bottom of our yard and eats our cat food."

Despite the fact it's lurking in these woods and no one knows when or where it will come out, no one here seems afraid of it.

Jacob Wroe: "I don't know, it doesn't look like it's going to harm anybody."

Even the other neighborhood animals like Bullwinkle the dog next door seem okay with the beast.

Kim Carlsen: "It's not afraid of the cats and the cats seem to get along with it fine."

The beast is not shy, and visits most often under bright sun. While no one here knows what it is, they do have a name for it -- the hyote, a combination of a hyena and a coyote.

Wait! It's a ... : Unidentified creature stumps experts

ASHEBORO -- First of all, this is a real newspaper, not a grocery-store tabloid.

So, the story you're about to read is true.

It starts with Bill and Gayle Kurdian throwing out dried corn for the wildlife in their neck of the woods in eastern Randolph County, and an odd-looking creature taking them up on their hospitality early last winter.

"What in the world?" Bill Kurdian asked himself when he saw the animal for the first time.

About the size of a fox, but with short brown hair and a long cat-like tail, it looked more like an animal in a National Geographic spread out of Africa than any critter native to the woods of central North Carolina.


Kurdian called Guy Lichty, a curator of mammals at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. But Lichty couldn't help based on just the description. So, as soon as he got his film developed, he couldn't wait to show it to Lichty. But Lichty and other curators were still unable to conclusively identify the animal.

Lorraine Smith, another curator of mammals who looked at the photo, said it might be a grey fox that has lost much of its fur, possibly because of parasites. But, she stopped short of total certainty.

"You learn with animals that you don't provide an absolute," Smith said.

Eine Frage aber bleibt handelt es sich hierbei um kranke Tiere oder um eine neue mutation? Oder gar beides?
