Sorry for the all caps but that's how it's shown on the website.

And this is really cool. Here we have an animal that was part of a soviet breeding farm.
The Racoon dogs were released into the wild and they caught one that was killing livestock.
Definitely reminds me of the cupacabra. But i'm happy that this animal is a real creature and not some fake.
Great pictures.




Just several days ago workers of one Belorussian farm killed an unknown animal that had been attacking cows and calves biting their feet.

The local veterinarian examined the animal and told that it was the smallest of the three alike creatures seen in that district. Two others managed to escape. The vet cannot say what species of the animal it is. Hunters have disputes about it too. Some of them believe it is a mutant of some species. It resembles a hyena, has some features of a fox, a raccoon and a dog. The main local vet does think it’s a sensation and is going to simply burn the corpse of the killed animal.

One more alike animal had been killed by a Ukrainian farmer some time earlier. He gave the body of the animal to biologists who stated that the “chupacabra” was in fact a racÑoon dog.

Raccoon dogs started to be bred on Soviet farms in 1939, they had really good fur. When the war started all animals were released into the wild natural environment. Raccoon dog is a predator but it also eats vegetable food. It’s also not squemash about carrion and food wastes.

Has a rather long neck for a dog or raccoon. Weird. They should just leave poor animals alone.

Thanks for the pics OP.
But don't they call that a weasel ?
And when they use the word livestock I picture goats, cows. horses. Not chickens and eggs.

Looks like a little giraffe. They shouldn't worry about this animal biting feet, it can reach some more sensitive regions on an animal

Your images don't load, can OP or someone put up new links and images? So far it seems like it's only a weasel from other peoples comments.

The article seems to allude to it being a specific breed of wild dog.

so it's a known creature.

It seems to be a known animal since 1939...

englishrussia.com...

So it obviously isn't unknown...

Here is what they claim it is..

Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides)



I dunno, these look a lot more fuzzy than the one in the OP. Maybe they one they caught has the mange or something?

Belarus is the country that was hit the most by radiation from the Chernobyl disaster.

I agree, it doesn't look like the Raccoon Dog to me, not fuzzy enough. Very interesting find!

I am reasonably sure this animal is a raccoon dog suffering from demodectic mange. Worked at a veterinary hospital for many years to get through undergrad and there's no mistaking the hair loss and skin condition. The fact that it is a widespread parasite and easily transmissible between animals would explain why there were other such creatures sighted in the area.


Edit: not 100% sure if it is a raccoon dog, but I am 99.5783% sure it's suffering from demodex.
