    This animal has been running around the outside fence to my hospital, and someone finally caught it. This is a picture of the picture they took of it.

    For the life of me, I have no idea what this thing is. I'm no animal expert by any means, but to me it looks like a cross between a deer and a rat. its about the size of a housecat, has a head kinda like a deer, and a long, skinny rat tail with a puff of fur at the end. it has no hair anywhere else on it body, and its skin was like a pale tan/gray. It was very sick looking.

    Any vets/vet assistants/animal experts on here that know what this thing could be??

    I have more pictures, and even a video, but they're from far away. This is by far the best pic I have.

    It's a manged fox. You would be surprised at how unrecognizable an animal is when it's "nakid"

    It's definitely not a wolf. A fox at best.

    fun stuff coming soon! New battery, radiator and CV joints and axles. Added some Rancho RS5000 shocks.
    If its the size of a house cat its a fox with a severe case of mange, and if the eyes are cloudy its looking like it has cataracts...deff not a coyote. its way too small. We have them around our house, i couldnt get to my rifle in time to shoot it tho. but dont touch that thing. its creepy looking lol
