While accustomed to observing coyotes, foxes, and raccoons in her yard, Kahlig couldn't help but be surprised by the unique appearance of the brown animal, which appeared to be a blend of a hyena and a mountain lion.

Standing roughly 100 feet away, Kahlig snapped photographs and sought opinions from her neighbors on Nextdoor to identify the mysterious creature.

The comments mentioned a range of possibilities, including a coyote, a mountain lion, a "weird looking dog", and even the mythical "chupacabra", a fanged creature from folklore known for purportedly drinking the blood of animals.

"Whatever it is, it's so big. I've never seen a coyote that big before," Kahlig said. "It's something I've never seen before and it spooked me for just a second. We'll see if it comes back."
