A "mystery beast" was found dead in Turner, Maine.
It was hit by a car on Saturday while chasing a cat. Several people photographed it's carcass but wildlife officials refused to come out to examine the body. It has since been picked apart by vultures.
It's being called a possible "hybrid mutant" by a cryptozoologist who says he examined a similar animal that was shot by a hunter in Maine a year ago. He said in that case DNA analysis showed it to be a rare wolf-dog hybrid.
The animal that was hit by the car on Saturday was described as charcoal grey and looked "half-rodent half-dog." It was described as having a busy tail, short snout, short ears and curled fangs that hung over the lips. Tose who saw it said it was "evil looking" and "like something out of a Stephen King novel."
There have been sighting of these animals for the past 15 years in Androscoggin county and have been blamed on the deaths of several dogs and cats.
This information is from a story out today on the Associated Press.

Looks like the "Jersey Devil" relocated to Maine.

The photo looks somewhat doctored (colored the animal purple). In that case, this is more a story for the National Enqurier.

It's just bad color reproduction. It's not intentially colored.
Here are a couple other pictures of it:
