'Cousin Itt' shows up in doorbell camera footage

What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: YouTube / Renee Schiavone
A video clip recorded in a residential back yard shows a strange pint-sized creature covered in hair waddling around.
Captured outside the family home of Patch managing editor Renee Schiavone in Reche Canyon, Southern California, the intriguing nocturnal footage shows some sort of strange hairy animal wandering around in the garden on two legs.

The clip has since generated debate online, with some likening the mysterious visitor to Cousin Itt - the hair-covered, gibberish-spewing relative of The Addams Family.
But could a fictional retro television character really be a viable explanation for such a sighting ?

Most likely, the peculiar visitor is actually a skunk doing a handstand - a behavior that usually precedes a customary spray of foul stink.

Whatever the case, however, the clip is certainly intriguing.

Firstly, it doesn’t look CGI. Secondly, the video title and article says that it’s a spotted skunk. They’ve also seen it on another of their cameras since. ‘Looking at the camera every morning is a ritual now. And with a couple of cameras on their 2-acre property, there’s a lot to see. One of the cameras showed our new friend the spotted skunk just strolling around like it owned the place, doing its little handstands to everyone’s delight because it did so without the olfactory affront.’ You should start watching VFX artists react by Corridor Crew to up your CGI spotting game, be...
