    It somehow reminds me of Sea Iguana's.

    It's way too small for that..

    And yea, alex, it seems to be the size of a cat..
    The black dot on the shoulder is a fly.

    I wonder what they taste like.

    This is a DEAD animal and don't let anyone suggest otherwise.

    The guy on the fox interview said it's a racoon or dog and the "beak" was canine teeth.

    The bottom jaw, maybe resembles a dogs but the top looks like a beak to me. Plus there doesn't appear to be any outer ear tissue.

    Raccoon makes sense seen the body shape, also fits the size.

    The "monster" raccoon is of course partly decomposed

    It's fur fell out and the front of it's upper jaw is decomposed to the bone.
    Also, it's missing some upper jaw teeth.. in particular the canines.

    Use your imagination dude.

    See the raccoon jaw image I posted and compare to the exposed lower jaw.

    Dude, that's not a beak. The skin is just missing..

    Now I'm not saying it's definitely a raccoon, but it seems the best candidate so far.
    Imagine the upper jaw teeth aren't there.. see the curve of the jawline, compare with the "beak".
