weird picture? Any idea what it is?
 
We got this picture last night. At first We thought it was a back pack because it looks like shoulder straps up above it, but We looked at another picture from the same spot, and those are 2 little saplings bent down. Plus why would the camera have snapped a pic of a backpack laying there? lolIt looks to be a tad bigger than a coon. My Dad thinks it looks like a fisher cat. If You type fisher cat on yahoo images it does resemble this, but if anyone could clear the picture up it would be great.

Do you have anymore pics of it? This pic is to blurred to tell.. Also is that white on the tail or is it something else? I have tried to edit it but I still can not tell if it's face looks pushed in or not. How close is it to your cam?

The fishers I have seen do not have the white in them and thier nose looks as though someone had hit it with a hammer or something and I can not see it from this pic. So with out a clearer pic I would probaly rule a fisher out.. Though it may be a fisher I would rather see a better pic of it before calling that shot..

They are not common, but i believe we do have a few here in Ohio. I took a video of a possible badger a couple years ago here in Medina county.

My vote is still badger.

Either a large coon or a badger.

Looks like a small kid wearing a camo stocking hat that has fell down in front of the camera to me.

Here is a picture of the same spot with a bunch of coons. Whatever it is looks to be bigger than the coons. Being as it is 5 or 6 yards further away.

do you guys have opossums down there? Looks like it could be one.

Some kind of bird, probably an owl... If you look you can see the wings.

It's a flying squirrel. I had to chase one out of our cabin one time, darn thing tried to climb the bathroom wall to get out the window and it fell in the toilet, what a mess. Anyway I got several very good close-up looks at it, and that is the very first thing that came to mind. Same grey color, same large eyes (fishers are much darker brown - black). This looks like a big one, but when they run or jump (into a toilet), the skin flaps make them look much larger. It looks like this one has just landed and it's skin is flopping all over thus making it look bigger.
Cool pic.

Ground hog?? Do they have them in your area?

It looks like 2 coons to me. One just slightly behind and to the left of the other. The one in front looks like hes looking down is why you can't see his "mask" as well. You know they're there as you have clear pictures of them.

Im 75% sure its a owl.....25% it could a a badger. Badgers are extremely rare in Ohio.

I would say that it could be a raptor of some sortlanding on the ground. Looks like a birds face and wings at the sides.

I'd say badger. The head kind of looks like a possum. Strange but cool

TreednNC 11-20-2008 01:21 PM

owl with wings cupped on the down beat, looking towards the camera

Looked again at it and it looks like a freakin Ewalk(sp) from Return of the Jedi!! WATCH YOURSELF OUT THERE.
