A strange creature was roaming the streets of Ramona, California. The creature wasn't something any of the residents had ever seen before, so they were really curious about it. Some were even scared by its appearance. People were shocked when authorities finally realized what the creature was.

In December of 2017, the unknown creature was spotted prowling through dumpsters and garbage bins, looking for food in the middle of the night. People that heard the animal assumed that it was just a raccoon, but people who had actually seen it knew that it couldn't be a raccoon because it was pink and hairless. Those that had knowledge of wildlife thought that the animal needed help, and they were right.

Park ranger Angel Willoughby lives in the area where the strange creature was roaming. Angel and his other family members spotted it near their home. Because of the creature's blotchy skin, Angel assumed that the creature was in need of help. They knew they needed to capture it and call wildlife experts, but it definitely wouldn't be easy.

The creature was chased up a tree by the family's dog, so they tried to find a way to capture it. Finally, the family lured the creature towards a huge trash can and it was trapped. After taking a picture of the strange animal, they sent the image to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. It was unbelievable, but the staff thought they might know what the creature was.

The CDFW had recently received reports a week prior about a creature in Forbestown, in Butte County. That creature was also spotted rummaging through people's trashcans. The creatures were the same size, but they looked different. If the two creatures were indeed one in the same, it was in a lot of trouble.
