The foot/paw being dragged in the sand is strange..

I think it's a dingo with spinal damage (hit by a widow maker?) and dragging it's back legs. If that's the case shouldn't have to follow the tracks for long before coming across exhausted dingo.

Is this a test auscraft? I mean, do you actually know what the right answer is? Or will we never know if anyone gets it right?

Yes the answer is known and yes the answer will be given . But will leave it another day as it has drawn a bit of interest.:) and some very imaginative answers very interesting . Has anyone got it right yet? I tell tomorrow.

Thanks to all who had a go.
There is a correct answer- it is a GOAT.

It was good to see so many giving it a go and even trying to explain the oddity. well Done. I will add the hint about the ground was important to ID, Many other goat tracks present did not show drags and in the cases of aged tracks they could have easily been overlooked as a dog type track when prints joined which a few thought it may be dogs.
Goats tend to drag their feet creating a trough between prints. this is more noticeable in thick soft surfaces.

Nice work Hairy. Thanks aus. I did look up goat tracks but the prints looked like 4 toed paw prints. So did you actually see the goat?
