Kennebunk Mystery Animal a White Coyote

Updated 1 year ago

A state wildlife biologist says he has solved the mystery of the strange white dog-like animal found dead under a homeowner’s porch in Kennebunk last week. Scott Lindsay said Monday that based on his examination of the animal’s cranium, teeth and other body characteristics, the animal found March 18 is a rare white coyote. There had been speculation that the animal was a wolf – even though there is no known wild wolf population in Maine – a domestic dog or even a hybrid. Lindsay tells The Portland Press Herald, that a cause of death has yet to be determined. There were no obvious external injuries or gunshot wounds. He’s holding off on a necropsy in case the state wants to put the animal on display in a museum.
