Around 1830 I saw a small piglet sized mammal crossing the road from one section of woodland to another. I couldn't get a picture. It appeared to have similar skin to pig but longer legs a longer snout and a straight tail about 4 or 5 inches long and was quite agile. It seemed to be pinkish in colour with either very short, or no hair! I have never seen anything like it before, It definitely wasn't a dog. My daughter, who was with me, confirms the description.
