Mystery Creature Found In Maryland (Pic)


<snip>

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?"

5. Or a shaved down boar.
Some people are just getting way too kinky for me. It's just a short step to man box turtle marraiges you know.

2. Looks like a fox with a severe case of mange
If so I hope the poor creature can be captured and treated. Unchecked, mange is a horrible way to go.

4. Hyena?
Kinda looks like a hyena - the face & back legs seem to favor that.
Is this another 'exotic' pet that someone let go?

6. D'oh!!
If we read the last line of the story:

they do have a name for it -- the hyote, a combination of a hyena and a coyote.

7. Looks like someone glued a mane on a Bull Terrier.
Or someone's pet Hyena got away. Maybe even a Dog/Hyena cross.

8. And this from NC:
http://www.libertypost.org/cgi-bin/readart.cgi?ArtNum=5...

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.

17. It's just a skinny ugly dog. Or a Tasmanian tiger.
My vote goes for "dog", however.
