Hi Experts, please could someone take a close look and tell what creature this is? A group of people in west africa are hunting and killing the creature based on superstition that it represents some evil in the area. This is the best picture I have and I think this particuar one was killed with a machete cut to the snout. Thank you.
Difficult to say without having any idea of the size but looking at the right hand front paw and nail I would suggest that it might be a rabbit of some description,or possibly a hare of which there are also a few different species.
