i know what you mean but take the fur from the picture in the photos of both my paw pic and your paw pic. in the picture of the creature you clearly have a shot of the underside of its feet, the pads are not the same as those found in canines i agree toe length could be the same but the pads are clearly not canine, also there is a distinct lack of dew claws on the creature, (even if the due claw had been removed (as often is on domestic dogs)(surely there would still be the nodule where the dew claw had been?)) would be intrested to see what others think

I was putting that down to bloating but I could be wrong then.

Someone saying it on twitter isn't evidence... lol

Is there not a link to actual evidence?

and Im assuming people get their drinking water from the same river this washed up out of, yummy.- I've looked and looked at this, and while it does resemble the rat species, it clearly has something wrong with it, the no hair reminds me of another picture I saw online of something they were calling a hairless dead chupacabra, it wasn't of course but this is what was written under the picture, but it had no hair like this, and the same color skin and teeth/ears. Either way, I will see this thing in my nightmares tonight, that image is hard to erase from your mind. - theres no doubt that things happen and are still happening that we can not explain, that we have yet to discover, but when I see things like this it makes me thing its the result of human created chemicals, etc. that change the characteristics of animals...like someone mentioned, it could even be a disease. But then again, what do I know, Im no scientist.

The Department Chair of Zoology at Weber State University Dr. Sam Zeveloff, now tells us that he and his colleagues think the mutilated creature is most likely a raccoon.

"Several of us here think it is a raccoon! Its dentition from what can be seen, most resembles a raccoon's; so do its fingers," he wrote in an email.

This does my head in... Can't they quickly test it so we know.. Seriously?!

I find it hilarious that a "zoologist" thinks it is a raccoon. So well done everyone in the thread who "thinks it is a raccoon you can now class yourself as Zoologists.. LOL

Still not IS.

It amazes me that these people even comment. They didn't help at all. Just DNA test the thing and tell us ffs.

Hi Coffey.
Did anyone think to recover the carcass for DNA testing?   To be honest, had it been me finding this creature, I would only have taken piccies. It is not worth the trouble, or the cost of taking it for further tests.  Any animal that dies and then decomposes to the state in which this creature was found (specially if decomposition occured in the sea) will look unusual although most can be identified at scene or with sufficient photographs taken of the relevant parts of the animal, (teeth etc) and with an object within the photograph that can be used to identify the size of the animal.
I think the photographs are all we have and they are not the best in this case :)

Is that a fly on the creature's neck (second picture)?

If so, might it give some sort of scale?

Ugly little bugger though.

It's not a rat, they don't have teeth like that.  The jaw is too broad.  Rats have narrow jaws and their incisors are long both top and bottom.  Also, rat tails at very distinct, looking almost scaley, and much longer.

This looks like a dog.

Good point, just kinda frustrating when everyone wants to know, but zoologists just say the same as us. lol

Could be a mutated animal that washed up like all the others, very mysterious though, they should do this topic on the show fact or faked,

Still no solid answer on this one yet?

I am still going with rodent...

Just not sure which one.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.
