When the hyote turns out to be a fox.

The hyote is a cryptozoological animal that was repeatedly sighted in Baltimore County, Maryland during the summer of 2004.

Based on eyewitness reports and a videotape of the creature captured by rigging a motion detector to a camera, some locals speculated that it was an as-yet undiscovered species. Skeptics surmised that it was most likely an escaped hyena or a canid affected by disease.

A humane trap finally captured a specimen alive on August 1, 2004. Veterinarians identified the animal as a red fox infested with sarcoptic mange, a parasite that causes hair loss.
