Call in the cryptozoologists

hyoteThis mystery animal is traipsing around the Baltimore suburb of Glyndon.

"The beast is not shy, and visits most often under bright sun. While no one here knows what it is, they do have a name for it — the hyote, a combination of a hyena and a coyote."

UPDATE: Numerous readers have written in with reports that the "hyote" is actually a fox, dog, or bear with terrible mange. No matter the origin of the mysterious beast, I agree with this posting from the Fark forum: "We must catch it and learn from it."
