Early this a.m. (3 or so) a mammal was naar our front door. It resembled a rodent. It was much larger than a domestic cat. It waddled slowly. It didn't have a tail. It was tan/light brown and left scat with seeds in it. Its back was hunched, or tapered as a raccoon's back does. I have no idea what animal this could be, as groundhogs have tails and from what I've read, only leave scat underground. Any ideas what this aniimal is? I am in Southern, IL near MO. Thank you.
