A buddy got this pic on the farm he hunts and isn't quite sure what it is. This is the only pic he got.

Piglet was my first guess. They usually slope down at the rear of the back but could just be the position at that moment. Up on a stump makes a guy think something with paws but he looks too compact for any of the weasel family. Long legged woodchuck?

From: kyrob

If you zoom in it's feet look like they are made for digging and it appears it has a pretty long tail. There are some pigs in the area but it's feet and tail don't look piggish.

Somebody's pet cat or a really fat feral cat

Edit, after looking at other responses I could see a small pig too.

Young groundhog. When they want to, they can stretch out their legs. The young feller in the OP was probably drying off his nether regions.

Nutria, If he sees it they can be very aggressive. Ran in to one the in Marsh before they will attack you.

From: Ken Taylor
12-Sep-17
Will Tell, I agree, LOL!

But then it may be that rare cross between a ground hog and a Tasmanian devil.

Wow, if I'm right that is a hell of a find being in Kentucky. That would be the historic territory of this guy. See link

You can see the long tail in between the back legs if you turn your phone sideways and zoom in. If that is a Fisher the fish and game in KY would love to know about it. Cool animals up here in the north.

Not a chance its a fisher, its a dagum whistle pig.

From: Joey Ward

From: JTV

Not a Fisher... just a long legged Phil (Groundhog), it's stretching to get a look at something..

From: milnrick
12-Sep-17
Tend to agree with Rob Nye. It does resemble a Gouger - viscous little creatures! It might be the first caught on camera below the Canadian boarder. I'd only heard about them during our hunts in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.
