Location Description: on north shore rd. which connects north shore dr. and doriva beach rd. with cedar swamp on all sides. sighting was 100 yds of black lake cottages, people and pets.
Sighting Description:
while driving north on north shore rd from north shore dr about 150yds from doriva beach rd traveling appox 15 mph the animal was walking in the same direction 30 to 35 yds in front of me. after spotting it i slowed down to 5 mph and closed in on it to within 15 yds. when the animal turned to the right it ws still meandering along without fear of the car. it's body was appox 25 to 30 inches long with a tail that seemed almost as long. a reddish color with what looked like brown hints randomly thrown in. it was 18 or so inches high. there was a slight sway in the back and the tail came off the rump with a little arc and curved up without touching the ground. after entering the cedar swamp I did not see it again.
