    except for the tail and size.........
    are young woodchucks without hair on the tail?

    We had to kill something similar to this, its feet are the same, the coat is BROWN and the tail is as long and hairless as its body.........
    OH heck I will just go dump it out of the pail and take a pic.
    Meantime - think what it is. Hubby swears its a wood chuck.
    And yes my dog got bit by it, baaaad. He is OK cept he drips blood everywhere, it got him on the mouth.
