KUTV2 reporter Morgan Saxton was presenting a broadcast in Utah County in the dark after the flooding. She was commenting on the condition of the area and up walks a dog. She created a stir because she first says a dog has arrived followed by uncertainty as to whether it is some other strange creature.
‘I think it’s a dog…I’m not sure. But, um, anyway, there’s some creature below me…’
And that ladies and gentlemen were the words that set alarms bells ringing and a viral circulation of her broadcast. People weighed in on identifying the mystery creature which always looked like a plain old dog to me. What else could the animal be?
It was impossible for the animal to be a domestic cat or a mountain lion. It does not look like a coyote but does look like a dog, which it actually is.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources sent down an expert to check out paw prints and identified a dog. Surprise!
The dog’s owner’s came forward with a photo to prove that Morgan Saxton saw a….yes, a dog.
It’s a slow news day folks….
