Fox-deer thing and the credibility of photos

This guy took a photo of a mysterious creature in back yard. The creature looks like a cross between a fox and a deer, with a cat's tail. It's very strange.
It's funny how the digital age has completely taken away the credibility of photographs. As soon as I saw the picture, I said to myself "that's a photoshop!" I have no idea if it is, but how can anyone tell? I suppose if he has original negatives on film, rather than digital. Still. Cool looking photo anyway.

It doesn't look like a fake to me. I'm thinking that it is an animal with mange.

Yeah, some expert in the article says it is most likely a fox who had lost its hair. That's probably what it is, I was only describing my first reaction. Although, the legs look awfully long for a fox, no?
