Dog

The hair looks to be from a long-haired, shaggy dog. The only wild animal with bark fur is a badger and that has much courser fur. That does not mean the run has been made by the dog, that is probably badger or rabbit.

If you want to put up an identification for the dog fur I'll be happy to agree to it.
