    That’s a new critter on me. Deer isn’t spooked. The tail looks like a cat but the marking are not typical nor is the neck length or ear size compared to the head. Looks like it’s about the size of coyote too but it’s not a dog type animal. Mississippi has a new critter. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_whistle}

     

     

    South American coati mundi are found in south Texas and this picture sure might be one, just a guess.

    I agree, not sure what that is.  My first thought was gray fox, but it just doesn’t look right, and there with a deer……..{#emotions_dlg.typotux}

    Fox was my initial reaction, and is still my thinking. I believe it’s just the angle of the animal to the camera that has the animal looking so odd. Likewise, I think the fact that it is in the foreground and the deer in the background leaves the ‘fox’ looking bigger than it is.

    Fox have many cat-like features and traits, to boot.

    Otherwise, it is a juvenile Chupacabra http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggMWBHivne0
