It was variously suggested that it was a hyena, a wolverine or a fisher (by which I mean the animal so-called, not a hapless passing angler).
My own guess, for what it's worth, is that it was a dog of some sort, a peculiar crossbreed. The extra toe might have been a deformity. Crossbred dogs can take so many forms that it is quite plausible that their doggishness (yes, that is a genuine word) may not always be recognized easily.
