LEBANON JUNCTION, KY (WAVE) - Has a mythical creature made its way to Kentucky? Some people seem to think so, after a Nelson County man came across a creature with grayish, wrinkly skin and no fur. Mark Cothren shot and killed an animal on Dec. 18 because he said he feared what it was, since he did not recognize it. He said the animal walked from the woods onto his front yard around 3 p.m. Cothren lives on Mount Carmel Church Road in Lebanon Junction.






It looks to me like a fox with end stage mange. They don't usually lose all fur, but it's not unheard of.
I don't know what do you guys think?

While I have no knowledge in cryptozoology this is definitely a very interesting find.
I have never seen a fox let alone a fox without hair.
It does seem to have almost finger like digits.

Bald racoon maybe?

fox or coyote with mange happens all the time even at this stage they can be rehabilitated and released
seems to be more and more common poor things,something in the environment must be making them more susceptible than ever before

oh wait just looked at the paws again it's a raccoon..same as above still applies

Thanks for this post

I don't think the explanations on the news are very believable (coyotes with a severe case of the mange???). How about some DNA tests on the animal?

They obviously know what it is already; I suspect an experimental lab escapee.

It looks like a coon to me. Poor animal


I wonder if it got into some kind of waste that compromised its immune system.

I have to go with Coyote. The way that one in the video is running is for sure a coyote. Coyote, coyote, coyote.
No Montauk, coyote.
Star for making me look.

I agree what ever it is they need to run some blood work and see what the hell is going on in the environment.

It's another mundane animal defaced by mange.

I can't believe people are still calling these things unknown.

I'm leaning towards coon myself.I think when people start calling this defect ''mundane" Don't you think there is real problem in the environment.

I agree with the mange is a problem issue, so many coyotes fox and raccoon are affected I'm thinking there is something seriously wrong with the environment,every time I see one of these poor animals on youtube or the news I feel sad that our wildlife are suffering like this

I can't ever remember seeing this many affected animals I don't know if it's on the rise, or if it's just because we have the internet now?

Yes, Coon with mange.
But, i believe this Coon has
had an intimate encounter with Lady Gaga and
has been traumatized by the event.
It should have been offered some type
of counseling ,not shot to death.

From the photo, it looks to be female with teats. It may have had a family waiting for its mommy to come home and a darn human killed yet another animal - what a surprise! Yeehaw!

Mange can completely denude an animal. Poor girl, out in the cold without her coat. The ears look a little large for a coon. It looks like it was in good health before being killed. I't doesn't seem to be suffering from starvation. DNA will let us know what it is for sure. If it's a chupie, it must be a Mexican one. The Puerto Rican chupies fly.

Looks like a bald chihuahua. The "fingers" are strange though.

I live in Kentucky though and I can vouch for the fact that weird stuff roams around these parts. I can also vouch for the fact that the first response to seeing something "unknown" here is to shoot at it.

Probably just a bald racoon.

It may very well be a raccoon. However it could also be an opossum.

Opossum feet also look very much like that.. Have a look at the pic..




Ok now picture this without fur..

Opossum
