I did notice that a lot of sightings of strange animals/monsters/cryptids are done by either OBGYN nurses or gynecologists. Coincidence? I think not...

But it's just not completely dog-like and not completely cat-like, which - assuming this picture is indeed from the southern U.S. - leaves only the fox.
I was thinking fox with mange too. Foxes with mange make me sad.

I noticed that too, and it struck me as odd. I thought it was bad 'shopping too.

The National Geographic ran an article on a simliar fox seen near Fuquay-Varina, NC. Take a look at the creature there.

A-ha! So it's a hairless fox (and why didn't I ever think of searching the news ) No wonder I was drawn to figuring out what it was



-Fox (Now with more hairless genes!)
