It looks as though it's a humanoid, but on its hands and knees. Though I believe it to be a new type of "shaggy wild boar".

I cant see it. Does any one have a bigger picture? I'm wondering the same thing. I don't want to make any conclusions untill I can see it better. But it does look like a wild boar in those pictures.
