Just off the cuff -- the muzzle-to-jaw ratio looks wrong for a bear, to me. Hard to tell, if the object/creature is in motion. The muzzle looks
too long and rectangular, whereas most bear I've seen have a rather truncated triangle-shaped muzzle.
Also, even a bear emerging from hibernation..... this creature looks too long, gaunt, wiry.
I did a 400% enlargement, and it just doesn't look to demonstrate much in the way of a musculature, especially for such a slim creature. I think
I'd have to tend toward Raven's view of it being a statue or other fixed object. Look at the way the light (in the enhanced photo of the OP's)
looks flat and reflective, even on the edges, where it [possibly] should be less reflective.
Agree with the OP, it do look creepy, especially the posture. Interesting that the haunches are fairly obscured -- that would tell the tale to some
extent if it were in the canine family.
Edit to add: look at the enhanced photo under 400% zoom. Right under the muzzle and toward the back, there are odd (maybe) pixelization features
between the creature and the background. Now, I'm wondering if this creature was inserted into the photo.
