LEIPSIC, Ohio (AP) – Residents of a small northwest Ohio village are theorizing about what type of animal has been prowling their streets in the last week.

The guesses in Leipsic (LIHP’-sihk), a village of about 2,000 people south of Toledo, are that the animal is a wolf, a large coyote or a wolf mix. The (Findlay) Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1xOe8Qk ) that the animal first appeared Sept. 7 and was seen for the next two days.

A woman living at the edge of Leipsic described the animal she saw in her backyard that Sunday as white and gray with a large bushy tail. She says it definitely looked wild and was larger than her golden retriever.

A state wildlife officer also spotted the animal. He said it appeared passive and was probably someone’s pet.
