    Appears to be a hybrid of a goat and a Seal Point Siamese cat.

    I was thinking some kind of canine…..until I spotted the horns. I’ll have to go get another piece of pecan pie and think about this some more. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving.

    This is a Japanese serow. From Wiki:

    The Japanese serow (Capricornis crispus)is a Japanese goat-antelope, an even-toed ungulate mammal.
    […]
    Labelled a “living national treasure of the forest”, the Japanese serow has achieved emblematic status in Japan with national associations. It is seen as a relic species harking back to the formation of the Japanese archipelago as distinct from mainland Asia. In a symbolic gesture in 1973, the Chinese government gifted Japan a giant panda, to which the Japanese government returned two Japanese serow. Municipalities and other regions of Japan have adopted the serow as a local symbol.
