I just went outside while ago to get some things out of the truck.I saw these really weird tracks in the snow.They are two large split looking hooves that are completely apart from one another just two of them, then almost a foot behind them is a small round looking hole in the snow.These tracks are over foot apart from one another coming up from the field which looks like a two legged something with a long stride.They are Not repeat Not close together like a four legged animal was jumping because there are only the TWO hooves close together but seperate in between followed by the small round hole about a foot behind them and all together each seperate set is over five foot apart.Beats me what they are from?

I'm afraid to tell you but I think the tracks that you saw may have come from a new species of..GLOBAL WARMING. As for the small round hole following it, I'm willing to bet that was the government p3nis trying to shove itself in global's arse but kept missing. but this is all just a THEORY...or is it?

Really guys I am not kidding, I can even meet some of you and have you follow me to my home to see for yourself.I don't have a camera available, but I will get a disposable one and take pictures tomorrow and try to post them if they will show up.I don't know if they will or not in the bright white snow or not but I hope they will.By the way I live in Hawkins County about 3 miles from Whitesburg.

Again I am not kidding one little bit if you don't believe me, just post on here and I'll meet anyone in Whitesburg wherever you want and you can follow me to my home to prove it.I am not lying ,nor do I think anyone is trying to plat a hoax on me.Because the tracks come up from the field, and I just can't see someone getting out last night as cold as it was to play a joke.If you want to see them,then hurry before the snow melts too.

It's Rabbit when you described the one small hole about a foot behind sealed the deal !

That is where they land with their two front feet together and then the next set is back feet , then another small hole then another back feet.The tracks can be from a couple of feet to 10 or 12 ft. apart.

But the two large hoof looking prints are turned in toward one another at the very front.I also couldn't see a rabbit jumping over five foot apart in each jump either.Most rabbits just hop a little at a time even in snow.Each two hoof looking print is turned in toward each other up at the front too.

Sh!t a rabbit will jump 20ft. if it needs to .
Does it look like this?

I really do appreciate your input and thank you,but wouldn't their back paws which is very similar to their front legs leave a similar print in the snow to their front paws and not a small hole, maybe the small hole is their tail sticking in the snow possibly? I am going to look rabbit tracks in the snow up on the internet,I'll post later to see whats up with it.
