It was mostly gray with a... well I dont want to say chubby because it wasn't really like that. Let's just say it had a bigg butt and a small head. It had a white stripe extending from the nose to a fourth of the way down it's back. I want to say it was abadger but I'm not sure. It looked like a fine mix between a skunk and a racoon. It was growling and had really really long claws.
