WISE COUNTY -- Animal experts are baffled by a small, hairless creature found dead on the golf course at Runaway Bay in Wise County.
Maintenance worker Tony Potter picked it up Wednesday morning. To him it looked a little like a raccoon with no hair.
"Definitely not a dog," he said.
Potter showed the remains to several people and then took it to a veterinarian's office in Bridgeport. He said no one there could identify it, either.
"My wife wouldn't let me keep it in the freezer," he said, so Potter gave it to the Center for Animal Research and Education, a big cat sanctuary in Bridgeport.
