Son took Sabir to the boardwalk late last night, and was approached by a wobbly sick seeming weasel which did not seem afraid of the dog, or willing to be scared off by shouting and stomping. Son backed off and called the police. even if it was a pet that had somehow gotten loose, it should have been wary of a strange dog. Rabies unlikely but worth avoiding... Police came out but could not find it. They were very nice though.
This was apparently a little girl dragon. She must have been miserable on a strange street on a night barely above freezing. She could have been run over, she could have just died of the cold. Now she will go somewhere quiet with a nice heat-lamp.
