BIG TROUT LAKE, Ont. — A strange and ugly creature has washed ashore in a northern Ontario First Nations community and it is being treated as a bad omen.

The creature, which is over 20 centimetres long and has a bare, gargoyle-like face and furry body, was found in a lake on the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug reserve, some 200 kilometres south of Hudson Bay, earlier this month by hikers.

A dog was sniffing around in the water and the hikers noticed the creature face-down in the lake. The dog then dragged the creature onto the land.

The community's website, which also tells stories of mermaid sightings and a "huge water snake," offers a caution over the strange, unidentified animal.

"No one knows what it is, but our ancestors used to call it the Ugly One," the Kitchenuhmaykoosib website says. "Rarely seen, but when seen, it's a bad omen. Something bad will happen, according to our ancestors."

LOL @ Yorkie.

I was thinking possibly a raccoon. But the fur is not the right colouring.

Wow that is messed up. I hope what they are saying as to the omen is not true as B.T.L. is one of the communities that we work with.

I wish the picture showed the whole body, the head does look like badger though.

Fisher....


Badger...


Wolverine


Couldn't find any pics of the heads with skin but no fur.
Very difficult to tell, although I will guess fisher I have have never heard of/seen a fisher until i googled it just now but the fur seems to match the best.

ETA I just noticed the bottom K9 teeth of the animal and the badger skull are very much alike so I am changing my guess to badger

It's a River Otter. (With it's fur missing and flesh blanched and bloated from being in the water, obviously)






The skull is much too flat to be a Fisher or Wolverine IMO.

If it's not an Otter, my next guess is something closely related, such as a Mink.

The article says over 20 cm. Kind of vague.

Mink can get up to 62cm.

This is not a very good pic but on canoe.ca, they had a similar article about this with a full body view of the animal.

I can't believe the sensationalism over what is VERY obviously a dead mustelid.

The only bad omen is that the locals are clearly blatantly ignorant about their native fauna.

I will admit, I'm ignorant when it comes to fauna. I had no clue what that was.Embarassed

It's also interesting when the news media reports some odd creature washed up on the shore, no one knows what happened to the body after the pictures have been taken. There was something that washed up on the shores somewhere around New York last year (I think it was). No one knew after taking lots of pictures what happened to the animals body.

ETA: I googled mustlid pics and it does appear to have the same facial bone structure as this guy below:
