New mammals are discovered fairly regularly in Borneo (see Karl Shuker's column in Fortean Times) though this is a particularly interesting one.

But it's getting the big PR treatment cos of the massive logging / plantations operation that's about to hit that part of the forest...

Wicked creature -- part cat, part fox / dog, how does that work???
