I received the following email with the photo attached. I zoomed in and cleaned up some of the blurriness:
I haven't found any ideas on what this animal is, so I'm still looking. Please email with your take on it.
This was in Hollis NH - at about 1pm -- (I was driving on my lunch hour). I was toying with the idea of going into this old, cool-looking graveyard but I thought maybe not - because I didn't want to chance picking up any 'attachments' :) So I turned down a dirt road near it instead -- I began to drive down the road to turn around - and the animal walked left to right across my path- I took the pics and then turned the car around to leave - it walked again left to right in front of my car - then it slipped behind some trees - there was a house off of the dirt road - I was thinking - Gee, I wonder if they know this kind of animal is hanging around during the day- :)
It was taken on a cell phone - It was the size of a large dog - ( I thought it might be a coyote hybrid) has that fox color - I thought if it had any 'weirdness' to it - it might be because I decided against going into that little old cemetery - (it looked totally physical). The face is totally white - no features == when I looked at it I got the butterflies because I couldn't see a face where one should be! :D And I sensed that it was looking at me - because it was turned my way waiting...You can see the white in the pic.
I had heard a description matching the animal on two different shows about Skinwalkers - eek... ;)
NOTE: I told the witness that I thought it may be a black bear that had been overexposed (making it's color lighter with the white face). Doesn't seem to be canine IMO. What do you think? Lon
