Is This the SAMSON FOX ?

Anyone who has read the Charleston (SC) POST AND COURIER will know about the controversy over the Samson Fox. There were several alleged sightings of the very rare and seldom ever seen fox. Later last week the paper carried a similar story with a picture of some frozen creature which they think might be the Samson Fox. As the controversy grows we predicted further sightings. The photographs were in keeping with the tradition of UFO's: fuzzy and " provided " as the credits indicate.
Accordingly, we wanted to find the creature in question, get a good clear photograph and present an orderly and documented account of this increasingly mysterious saga. So, today we combed the rural areas of Orangeburg and Dorchester Counties, excellent creature catching country. We ventured on to the grounds of a former agricultural processing facility and look what we found....or rather what found us!
This doesn't look like any fox of our acquaintance as it came upon us suddenly. It is said that such creatures were unable to adapt to changing times, but as can be clearly seen it is riding a skateboard. That IS adaptability. The incident gave new life to a phrase we heard in the film " PULP FICTION ": " I'm gettin' prehistoric on your A** ".
We don't think that the DNR will be attempting to get any DNA from this fellow.
