Default Unidentified Tracks

I was taking my dog for a walk through the woods in my neighborhood we've had about 8 inches of snow in the past week. The picture below are the tracks i stumbled across i know for sure it was a bipedal animal it was the same pattern as a human track but i have never seen anything like this before each impression was about a foot long and spaced about a foot and a half apart but the thing thats really confusing is the impression was only a few centimeters deep into the snow I attempted to make a similar depth with my boot, it was a very dry snow so there was no support from ice on the snow whatever it was had to only be making maybe 4 ounces of pressure on the snow. I walk through my woods at least 2 times a day and have never seen anything like this before at all. Any advice of help would be much appreciated thank you

theyre about a foot long i could see where everyone would think they would be rabbit but even at a foot an a half which a bunny can easily do... it the top two were his hind feet and the bottoms where his front one foot would have to be way in front of the other he wasn't running theyre all the exact same size which is awkward for front and hind feet

yeah I agree. Rabbit. Saw some yesterday while riding around on the 4 wheeler. Boss and I were spreading corn and I had to ask him.
