A photograph of the carcass
|Theories|| · Cryptid|
· Dead dog
The Highway Beast was the name given to a strange carcass found on the side of a highway in Alexandria, Minnesota on August 1, 2011.
The carcass is white, with a small lower body and a thick upper body with an almost-nonexistent neck. The muzzle is dog-like in structure, and the creature's front paws possess five clawed toes each.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A hoax (possibly a manufactured corpse)
- A dead dog
- A dead badger
- A dead raccoon
- The location where the body was found was littered with large burrows, similar to those made by the American Badger.
