I would have to personally say that the picture is that of a grey or red fox. But, what is also noticeable about the picture is that the stomach area is distended. There is a possiblity this could be a female and is pregnant or lactating. Some animals will lose their hair or it will thin out when they become pregnant.
I breed dogs and have noticed these changes with my own animals.
The mystery creature has an extremely small head and snout and huge ears. The tail is unlike that of a fox, and the coloring is unlike the red fox or gray fox. I agree that, whatever it is, it might be pregnant. Which would mean there must be more than one running around in the forest.

Hi Terry and Chad,I was wondering where this animal was seen? It reminds me of some sort of wild dog from Africa...Maybe a cross bred dog.I am sorry I have been working and I am trying my luck on a design for a Motor trend car design contest and also a Memorial design for around my home area.But for sure I always check whats going on with my favorite internet site.If you get anymore reports, It will be interesting to read.I read articles of strange animal sitings in other places also like in arizona and such.Thankyou for the picture.
