What is this animal?
If this isn't a Yeti I don't know what it is. Actually, unless he has two left feet I don't think its a Yeti, but I cannot figure it out. I figure with all the knowledge on the Bowsite there will be some good ideas. A friend of my wife took this in their yard in SE MN
Any other pictures? Ones where you don't block half the light on the track?
Thanks for adding the second picture. Although, even with the better light, I have no idea.
Could you not see any defined edges at all at the bottom of the track? As in, maybe small animal tracks at the bottom and the rest of the non defined stuff could be tail or feathers pushing into the snow?
looks like Canada Goose maybe!
Yeti, and he hates the NRA.
Looks like a regular human foot print with a goose stepping on the same print in the toe area.
The Yeti stubbed his big toe on his right foot and is hopping across the ground.
That is the reason you hear the howling sometimes out in the woods.
A boot with one of those cramp on traction devices maybe.
Looks like someone wearing crocs.
Hard to say from those pics, second pic almost looks like a rabbit running? Did you follow them?
That is a Yeti being chased by the NRA.
As with any track, a single print without any context can be difficult to identify.
When in doubt chupacabra.................. and yes, I AM using that as a verb
A Yeti enroute to the NRA Convention in Dallas this weekend. “Follow me!”
smt10pt gets my vote rascally running rabbit oz
Not sure, but I’ll bet it had something to do with whatever killed Paul@thefort’s turkey!
Coincidence that this pic shows up shortly after Paul’s incident??.......I think NOT!
Agree with the others, wabbit.
Rabbit is what I was thinking too.
Hey don’t mention Yeti on here. We done banned um.
Whatever it was probably laid down thats what caused the bigger "track"
Clearly a Gorn (see original Star Trek series, "Arena" episode).
That's called a "A reason to carry my gun while in the yard.". And, "If I left it in the truck, I'll get it tomorrow when it is daylight.".
My sister in law. She occasionally snacks on guys from Minnesota. She's gone through a few. Follow the trail. If you see a broken and tattered man partially buried in leaves and grass, approach very carefully. She's most dangerous when defending a carcass.
Any trumpeter swans around there?
It's not an animal. It's a mark in the snow...
Running rabbit and the snow was blowing around and than froze. Shawn
I’m with Mike.
It’s only a track if there are more just like it.
Most likely a bounding squirrel.
