I've done a quick search for this to see if we'd talked about it before, but found nothing, so here goes...  

A remarkable photographic image has been snapped on the morning of June 13, 2006, in a woman’s backyard in the Midwestern state of Nebraska. KETV-7 in Omaha broadcast the picture on June 14, and it appears to be an animal unlike any most people have seen locally.

Photo of the creature

So, any ideas?

I can't help nut think that the creature's hind legs remind me of a dog. I wouldn't say it had stripes so much as brindle colouring.

Dog weight pulling - note the shape of the back legs compared to the mystery animal.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

It was discussed here last year right after the pic made the news. I think most people voted for a dog of some kind and some thought it was maybe a bobcat.

Huh, looked for 1/2 hour for the thread, but can't find it.  sad.gif

The long tail and hind legs remind me of a baboon. That's my best offering. I'm not sure what one would be doing in a back yard in Nebraska though. Lol

It does look like it has a brindle color to it's coat.  But the enhanced photo on the site with the article does make it look like a big cat.  Either or I don't think it's anything unnaturaul or that a tranquilizer dart couldn't fix, lol.

A bamboo? Did you mean baboon? Yes it does look like the back legs of an "ape-like" animal. And does anyone know what that bright patch of colour is near its neck?

Ok well to me,if anyone else has seen Peter Jacksons version of the Two Towes of LOTR,than to me it looks like a warg in color and all,even the way the back pops up,and im not saying a fictional creature popped outta aTV,all im saying is it could be a fake by someone who knows a lot about Photo Editing,hers a warg for example for those who dont know waht it is. The pic actually gives some good shots of the legs and color,and the back shot too.

  • It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.

Posted 05 September 2007 - 04:01 AM

Hmmm...from this photo a baboon is certainly a good guess although ferral hybrids can produce strange traits.

Thats a Jackal!


Vincent Campion - I think it's a flower. That's why the head is so difficult to see, it's behind foliage.

Ha, I knew that was a flower. I mean the slightly coloured part on its actual fur. I never meant the plant sitting on the window.

Maybe it's a huge escaped dog and the color is it's collar?
