LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife has determined the mysterious hairless animal we first told you about last week in Nelson County is a hairless raccoon.

Fish & Wildlife officials made the connection by matching biological features.

They don't know why the raccoon lost its hair, but say there's no question about the species.
