Bipedal dog-like creature photographed outside zoo

What sort of creature is this ? Image Credit: Reddit / Segu1n
This controversial image allegedly shows a strange creature that was seen outside the perimeter fence of a zoo in Texas.
The photograph, which was posted up on Reddit by the user 'Segu1n', has certainly generated some debate in recent days, however its authenticity remains a topic of contention and even if it is genuine, nobody seems to be quite sure what it actually shows.

According to the uploader, the image was captured by a game camera which happened to be covering the perimeter fence of Amarillo Zoo in Texas.

"It was posted in a private zookeeper Facebook group," he wrote. "The keeper said that they caught the image on a trail camera pointed at a perimeter fence and couldn't figure out what it was."
"I believe it was pointed from inside the zoo at the perimeter fence. (It was the Amarillo Zoo). The OP's other posts go back at least a year and are all just normal animal keeper type posts."

Assuming that the picture has not been doctored, it certainly seems to show some sort of animal, however it is unclear what type of animal it could be.

Another possibility is that this could be an optical illusion and that what we are actually looking at is a clump of vegetation or something else mundane that just happens to look like a creature.

Whatever the case, it's certainly unusual.

Yet another picture proving nothing due to blurring like millions of other pics proving nothing.

Just look at the legs. The knees aren't even under the body. A creature standing like that would just fall over backward. Looks like a prop. Maybe even a cardboard cutout.  What it is not, is a real creature. At least IMHO.
