I like the wolf in sheep's clothing idea. It would explain the eyes being torn out of the sheep body with the wolf showing through. And, I must like this idea, because a regular sheep supported my suspected area and this wolf doesn 't.
I get the impression of a tiger. The black marks under the eyes resemble a tiger’s markings especially on the left eye. The darkened eyes do make it look like it’s hiding in a sheep's carcass. If it’s a goat then with that and a tiger it could be a Chinese zodiac reference.
