There’s a hideous creature stirring up questions in Mississippi, but don’t fear, Southerners.. it’s dead.

Why only one unclear picture? If that was me, I'd be snapping away until my finger bled.

Anyways, rather intriguing. Has a body that reminds me of a dog or some other furry mammal, but it has a primate-ish face. It's in a garbage bag, so it seems to have been dumped. Could it be a dead house pet that someone disposed? Maybe...I don't know why its so furry and then its face is fur-less. Doesn't seem like anything unknown though.

The teeth and basic skull shape look very canine to me.  I vote for dead dog (sadly).

I second that.

The nostrils are too far apart for it to be a canine IMO. I think it's a pet primate that's been dumped.

Lol at one of the comments(after the article), suggesting it's an alligator :lol: ! Alligator in a fur coat, maybe?

T think you are right, check the coat on this one:

*Snip*

What the hell did they do to it's face though? It's eyes look weird in that picture. It's like it was owned illegally and something happened to it and it died so the owner got rid of the body. Don't know why you would own a baboon though. Not the friendliest of animals are they? lol

Think I've asked you this before, is that your dog in the picture? It looks a lot like a jack Russel I had.

It's a dog.

Take a look at the premolars they look like they are for slicing, rather than crushing like you would see in baboon/primate molars & premolars.

I have to agree with Lilly here, it looks canine to me as well, perhaps with it's face flattened by a vehicle impact.

I also have to totally agree with Misstress Dove as well, I'd have had bleeding finger syndrome as well from snapping pictures until my memory storage card was pegged out.

.....and it is a really bad picture. Can no one take a picture any more?

It does look a lot like a dog. One thing that is bothering me though, why does the face look like that? It's hairless and leathery. Was the face skinned or something?

Could the face have been burnt possibly?
