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.edit on 5-8-2011 by Manhater because: (no reason given)

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.

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.

Whatever it is/was, I "think" cause of death was IMPACT!
Just a guess.
