Mystery Creature Sighting Stuns N.J. Town; No One Has First Clue What It Is

RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – There has been a strange sighting of a strange creature in a suburban New Jersey town – and pictures of it have residents asking “What the heck is that?”

CBS 2’s John Slattery was working the day watch out of Manhattan, when his boss gave him this juicy assignment.

He took a vehicle out of Midtown. The sighting happened on Friday. He and his cameraman headed for the leafy community of Ridgewood, which was apparently being terrorized by an odd creature that lurks in and out of storm drains.

Slattery obtained video of the creature from a resident, but, like CBS 2’s reporter, was mystified.

“I saw a strange animal in the front yard,” witness Rob Lyons said.

Lyons had the presence of mind to shoot a picture of the creature on his smartphone.

It looks like a coyote or fox with bad mange. It could also be a juvenile...it has really large paws compared to the rest of its body.

Has no one there seen a fox before? Doesn’t look to healthy but that looks like a fox to me.

"As usual, it’s a dog with mange. I have a hard time believing how stupid people are. Don’t they have Animal Control in that town?"

It's a fox with mange.

I use the term “dog” as shorthand for canine, e.g. fox, coyote, domestic dog, etc. With the long tail, it may be a fox. At any rate, the claim that “no one has a clue” is just plain dumb...

“I can’t really tell, but it looks a little like a wolf, a fox, and I can’t tell what that long tail would be,” one woman said.

Your jackal has a rather short tail.
