Wierd creature found in Ontario

Recommended Posts

An Ontario First Nations community has released pictures of a strange, rat-like creature that a dog pulled from a local creek earlier this month.

Hmmm,

 

Looks a little suspect, but I guess it could be from cross breeding. I'm not sure if an otter can breed with a possum, but I suspect that's what it'd look like.

just looks like a muskrat or something and the hair from its face has worn away in the water...like what happens to any other creature thats been floating around the lake for a week or two.

It's decomposition on the face, bacteria gets into the skin and the hair slips off. The face is usually the first place this happens or around other body openings. No whiskers!

Probably a muskrat or baby otter.

Not possible. Opossums are marsupials, otters are placentals, two entirely different classes. You would have a better chance of mating a deer with a dog, which is still impossible.

More than 10 responses and no one has call "Atlantic". Come on what is this board coming to?

 

Easy to identify, that doesn't create buzz however.

I paddled through Big Trout Lake in my travels.

 

There were some pretty hideous looking local inhabitants but nothing like that.

ya there is no way thats a muskrat..If it were rotted it would look rotted.Decomposition looks one hell of allot worse that that. The flesh wouldn't be left intact the way it is. I'm not sure what it is but I do know its not a muskrat.

Local Cree know this creature as an Omajinaakoos, which roughly translates to “ugly one”.

 

Kinda like the local girl I "dated" very briefly when I was living in Kapuskasing.
