Mystery animal puzzles Diamond Valley residents
A strange-looking animal spotted slinking around the Research area in Victoria has left residents scratching their heads.
Some have likened the large-eared creature to a hyena or thylacine - had the Tasmanian Tiger made a miraculous return from extinction?
On August 14 teenager Danielle Barker solved the mystery, snapping a fuzzy image of the shy four-legged creature as it passed through her backyard.
Sadly, it was of course nothing more than a mangy fox.
