Mystery Animal in Thornhill
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
While crossing Doncaster (Thornhill) near the railroad underpass, an animal that was shaped like a rat, ran across in front of my car.
It was about a foot long in body with a short bushy tail about four inches long that was constantly twirling.
It definitely was not a rat.
Rats run different and being very familiar with them having dispatched quite a few in the past at the local dump.
Any ideas about it.
It was running low to the ground and sniffing for something.Hello Fred, sorry for the delay - we have quite a back-log of animal sightings to put on our website!
I think what you saw may have been a Possum - we have had lots of reports of them all across the province.
