Neil Gaiman's reading the Greensboro News and Record

Saw this from his Friday post:
There's a mystery beast in North Carolina, unless it's someone playing in photoshop.
From the article:
"What in the world?" Bill Kurdian asked himself when he saw the animal for the first time.

About the size of a fox, but with short brown hair and a long cat-like tail, it looked more like an animal in a National Geographic spread out of Africa than any critter native to the woods of central North Carolina.
Opinions in the on-line forum varied between really bad image manipulation to "I've seen it myself - in Ohio" to grey fox with parasites making its fur fall out before degenerating into the typical you're an idiot/why are you being so mean?/you're all idiots sort of intelligent discourse that I've come to expect in open forums (and which drives me screaming away from them).

So what's the deal, Greensburgers? Is it real, or is it Photoshop?
