It wasn’t that long ago we had a mystery animal of our own here in North Carolina. ( Original Post Follow Up ) The Black Bear Blog has the story of the creature that looks like could of come out of a Stephen King novel.
The local paper Sun Journal Story on the Creature
The world leading crypto zoologist, Loren Coleman has a lot of the information on his blog Cryptomundo and well worth reviewing if you have an intrest in this creature. He has been following this story for some time here is a link to stories about this creature from back in 2005.
Whatever it is it is certainly a weird looking creature. I suspect it’s some type of Coyote-Wolf-Dog hybrid. I’m some what surprised that Maine Wildlife showed no interest in figuring out what it is. Be interesting to see if they come up with an identification.
