Probably a cat. The tracks don't look four feet apart from the picture.
GNC said:They don't look like hoof prints at all, they look like pawprints, one in front of the other like a cat. And they don't look four feet apart either. Maybe it was an ABC?
GNC said:That last photo settles it. Definitely paws, not hooves.

On the night of 2/17, early morning hours of 2/18, there was a beautiful snowstorm. We are night owls, and around 11pm my 3 kids and I went out to play in the snow and take pictures with our digital camera. That went well, though we experienced the usual "dread" feeling that can come over us now and again in these woods. At 2:30am, I noticed I had left some lights on in the backyard by my rabbit barn. My son and I went out to unplug the lights and enjoy the snow one last time.
I was trying to unplug these lights when my son (who was standing in front of me) started pointing up in a tree and making struggling terrified sounds, but not speaking. I turned to look behind me and saw huge piles of snow falling from a shaking tree top. We were terrified and both started running for our back door. Halfway across, I stopped dead in my tracks, as I realized that now this "thing" was in front of me on my roof top. It had cleared approximately 85 feet from tree to roof in a matter of seconds! I was then horrified to hear this thing scuttling down the roof at me. We all reached the door at the same time - this thing reached the edge of the roof, and a mini avalanche of snow fell on our heads as it slid to a stop. We flew in the door and were freaked out.
I mentioned the incident to my semi-sleeping husband, who dismissed it as a "wive's tale" of bumps in the night. The next morning, however, we were all shocked to see the prints - cloven hoof prints - clearly two legged - perfectly preserved in the snow on our roof, documenting my story exactly. The tracks coming down the roof were approximately 3.5 feet apart. One could clearly see where it stopped at the edge of the roof, and then there were awful tracks spaced four feet apart going along the length of the entire gutter and disappearing off the side of the roof. No tracks on the ground anywhere. My husband got out our digital camera and carefully documented all these tracks.
Police were called out and could not identify the tracks, but guessed it had to be the size of a bear and wondered if I keep guns for protection. Local and statewide fish and wildlife folks cannot identify them, or insist that they are cougar tracks, which they clearly are not!
The creature looked to be about 4 to 6 feet tall. The head is awful - it has two large eyes, an animal head or snout, a large bulbous forehead with what appears to be horns in the front. I am now totally freaked out about living here.
But if they happened to have a foot lying around...Lord_Flashheart said:Or it could have been a hoax, but had it been a hoax I'd have thought they'd have used more than one foot on a pole to do so.
Minor Drag said:And what? Levitating up to and across the roof to make those tracks?
Human_84 said:The kid who first saw the creature was shaken up about it. Could be some dimented parents trying to scare the living crap out of their kids by hoaxing a flying, horned beast.
Human_84 said:What do you all think about the possibility that the family hoaxed it and tricked their kids, just for some attention? I doubt it but its possible.

The house is only one story high so the tracks could have been made by a local wag on a stepladder with a dogs foot attached to a broom handle with duc tape playing a prank.
That is not however the most plausible explanation of the lot, I notice that another possible exlanation I gave, that it was an animal with a limp making the track, was ignored.
The scratches on the water cooler look like the sort that would be made by a dog with large claws scrabbleing to get perchace on it as it jumped from it.
looking at the track photo i got this:
This is my favorite cryptid, so its worth posting that I dreamed about the thing last night, scary as hell. I've read so many stories about it that I beleive what I visualised in my dream is very close to the real thing. It was terrible, I awoke thinking it was so horrible that I shall never venture to find it even tho I had loose plans of visiting the area in the near future. In the light of the day I'm still interested. Not sure how, because it was an awful figure;seemingly real because it was a vivid dream, with horrible giant eyes and horns, a man-beast running at a quick rate of speed thru the pine trees, teathered wings flapping and the hoofs clomping about. Gives me the chills.
