I think this has to be a coon, but he sure looks strange... Instead of a mask, it looks like he has white patches around his eyes if I am looking at it right. Heres a couple of pics of him, and another normal looking coon pic from the same camera...

Is there anything else he could be? Does he just happen to have weird coloration, or is it a trick of the flash? What do you guys think?

Top two pics don't look fat enough for a coon. My first thought is a juvenile coyote or a feral dog. Nose is too big for a grey fox.

That's what I thought. Looks like a puppy to me.

First pic looks like a bobcat to me and the bottom are both coons. Coons I am catching now are pretty skinny looking.

I think you are making way too much from really bad photographs.

In the second photo it has eyes like a Ringtail but it could just be the light from the camera.



A clear conscience is often the sign of a fuzzy memory.
