Cristina Ryan says her home security camera captured the bizarre footage early one morning this week.
She said she and others are convinced it looks like a baby dinosaur, as it appears to be running on its two hind legs and has a long, thick tail - yep, a lot like those pesky velociraptors in Jurassic Park.
Speaking to Fox 35 News, Ryan said: "Any animal we can come up with that would be 'walking' at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn't walk this way.
"Maybe I've watched 'Jurassic Park' too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!"
And it's not just Ryan who thinks it looks like a little dino, either.
She says that everyone she's shown the clip to has come to the same conclusion.
Ryan added: "Some say a large bird, but that makes no sense - since whatever it is appears to have front legs. So not sure? Lol. I'm sticking with raptor myself."
After the strange footage was shared online by Fox35 News, many social media users have been left scratching their heads - although some people have their theories.
While some agreed that it did look like a velociraptor, some suggested it may have been a 'peacock', a 'dog with a costume on', an 'animal with a bucket stuck on its head', a 'gator', an 'emu' or a 'sandhill crane'.
"Unless Fred Flintstone lost control of Dino, that's someone's pet on a leash," one wrote, with another agreeing: "That's a dog. Hope someone finds it. Dragging a leash is very dangerous for it."
A third added: "A dog with a leash and something reflective on - raincoat? Our dog has a raincoat and he would look like that from above."
But others remained unconvinced by all the wild theories about dogs and leashes, with one commenting defiantly: "It's clearly a raptor."
Someone else added: "Jurassic World is for real!!!!"
I know which hypothesis is more exciting...
