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.
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.
The mange raccoon looks all scabby and rough, this animal had skin that seemed healthy just hairless. Maybe it was a hairless raccoon!!
