Mystery Roadkill Prompts DNR Investigation


ksax.com

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.

The dead white mammal was spotted this week on a Douglas County road with five claws, dark tufts of hair on its back and head and long toenails.

I am sure the increase in reports has something to do with the internet and media. Do you think these are just natural mutations? There sure seems to be, some pretty ugly and strange mutations.

I have to believe that these are just natural... BUT... who knows what kid of experiments are being done, in some blacked out warehouse in the woods.

I remember seeing this here. I think general consensus is it's a badger.

The U.S. Americans on that news clip seem so incredibly stupid, especially the reporters. I'd be so embarassed if I were a U.S. American, you guys are so poorly represented.

It looks like a badger. Possibly even some kind of dog.

The whole tone of that news clip was that of a very slow news day. I think at most, it could a normal animal, for instance a badger that may have a deformity to make it look odd? Not all wild animals born with deformities die at the early age. For instance, my family adopted a stray cat with cerebal palsy when he was one year old, and he'd lived all his life on the streets before being adopted, and he's still alive today at age 15! He has the deformed left paw and widely splayed back legs and curved spine. So if it were a deformed animal it's not actually that unlikely it could survive to adulthood, necessarily.

I think it is nothing interesting. Reminds me of the "Montauk Monster" which was really just a raccoon all along.

Edit: I just am seeing this after the post I make.

As I have say before, the whole story really seems like a slow news day. Things like this are advertised and publicised because there may be little else of new topics to report on, and the media needs its revenue. I like how they mention the Chupacabra, which in all filmed "sightings" has turned out to be a mangy fox/coyote.

I looked at the photos... and I'm not sure about it being a badger... the body shape isn't quite right...
given the long claws it's most likely a burrowing animal but that's as far as I'm willing to venture

For starters, whatever it is has lost most of its hair, most likly due to decomposition or mange.
Secondly , what a wierd little town.
Thirdly that reporter is an idiot and i hate it how he interviews idiots and children of idiots, even the ranger was an idiot. I think there is alot of imbreeding going on in that town.


Im not from america and are unfamiliar with your widlife.
But i just googled, badgers and wolverines, from photo's that i have seen It looks like a badger that has LOST most of its hair through decomposition.

These threads go to show just how badly disconnected from nature most of society is when they can't identify an animal without it's fur and go on to make goofy speculations like a "chupacrabra".
I agree, it probably is a badger.
Too small for a wolverine and no tail says it's probably not a skunk.
Weasel family is one of the few mammal families with 5 toes on front and hind feet.

I see what you mean it does resemble a badger but it still looks a lil off, 1 would assume dna evidence would help describe better but it does look odd.
