Mystery Skeleton

Does anyone have any idea what animal this is?

We found it while we were hiking today. It was inside the tunnel beside the skeleton of a deer.

We think maybe an oppossum or racoon?

Thanks for all your help.

I'm not real certain so I won't guess. We found the skelton of an endangered animal over by the place where they were going to put up new houseing, it turned out to be a badger, the northern california type. All we had to go on was the jaw bone and a few teeth. I love hiking that looked like fun.

You're the second person to suggest a badger. I emailed our State Game Commission, so maybe they can help. Looking at it, I also thought maybe a small dog? Far too many mutants take their pets out to the forest and just leave them. :( Unfortunately, most end up dead along the railroad tracks.

The PA State game commission claims it's the bones of a weasle. Ummm.... with those canines? That must be one helluva weasle!

They also requested that I go collect the skeleton and get it to them. Again.. ummmm.... NO. That really raised a red flag that it's something that isn't supposed to be in the State.
