Looks like a dog to me. Not sure what the mystery is here
.

Alexandria, Minn. (KSAX) - Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials have been unable to identify a mystery carcass found in Douglas County with certainty, prompting further investigation.. ABC News Report & Video



It DOES look pretty wild though when you view the ABC News Video of it. Them claws are mighty long! All white skin with a small mohawk of hair.

Just because it looks like a pig, don't make it a pig.

I've seen lots of dead animals, that doesn't look like any dog or bear I have ever seen. My aunt lives in the middle of a forest, I've seen plenty of roadkill and that...I don't know what that is

Badger skin is darker and the head looks like a dog of some description.

Looks like a Boar. Those nails are insanely long to be a dog. At first it looked like SPOT from the Little Rascals. Think that was his name.

Here's what i don't get, It said its "roadkill" .....BUT

When animals lose their skin like that, its normally been dead and soaking in water for a long time, Whereas Mange leaves the skin looking rough and scaly. Sooo I would call Badger or Wolverine that has been dead for a while submerged in water. How it got on a road I don't know, maybe hauled out and dropped by a Bear.

Pigs have hoofs.

Looks like someone tried to cross breed their pitbull with something other than another pit and this was the result. Dogfighters have been known to do some cruel stuff to their animals to gain an advantage.

I'm gonna agree with the DNR official in the news video and say it's a badger with mange.

Look at the claws in this pic;


And if you do a Google image search on badgers you'll see plenty more examples.

Good to see the reporter showing the road kill pics to the kids in the vid. Must have really made their day.

I agree with you, it looks like it's been in water for some time and something dragged it across the road. Dogs have only four toes so it can't be a dog.


Wolverines are rare, the chances of some genetic experiment, slim, its not a dog, nor a cat. Opossums don't have the claws, raccoons don't either. Those claws are meant for digging, and I've never seen a badger, but that would be my guess.

I discovered another image of a hairless badger roadkill which would support the badger theory:



This has been positively identified as a badger. Note the similarities.

Edit: This photograph was taken in Dorset, UK.

Albino Aardvark while everyone's guessing?

Whatever it is/was, I "think" cause of death was IMPACT!

Just a guess.

Let's use some fun equations!



Given the potential mass of the vehicle and the speed we can deduce the following from the image. The equation gives us clear answers, that animal went SPLAT!
