Typical !! Don't know what it is??? Shoot it!!If I don't understand what it is I shoot it...
Feared what it was... Wtf!
What it actually is I have no idea though, but it will certainly be sorted out when it gets to the right people.
True!!! And I think you are right... I can't believe I did this... but I googled photos of racoons with mange...My guess is that it's a hairless raccoon. And although the poor creature may be dieseased, it don't do any harm. It just picked the wrong yard to pass through.
Google can be a wonderful thing. Even the Hairless raccoon's rounded ears seem to match up.
No clue... maybe different type of mange?? But also... the original "animal's" skin does look bumpy and pitted with little chunks out of his ears...The mange raccoon looks all scabby and rough, this animal had skin that seemed healthy just hairless. Maybe it was a hairless raccoon!!
