I was watching Nosferatu, and this dog-like animal appeared, with very curious stripes. I was wondering if this is clearly a specific animal, and which one it is, or if it's too mixed up and low resolution to tell. You can see in this video, at 11:43 and 12:22 (close up) to 12:33. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH7L4V-3VxA&t=703
Sorry about my lack of a more scientific research, but I couldn't be farther from being a biologist. This is all I got: from the stripes, it immediately brought to my mind a Thylacine (which is what caught my attention), but even though it would not me an anacronism (it was extinct in 1936, the movie is from 1922), the movie is European (filmed in Germany, Slovakia and Romenia) and the story happens in Europe too, so it wouldn't make sense to be a Thylacine (not to mention that in 1922, you wouldn't find them right around the corner ;) ). Further investigation confirmed the already almost obvious, the stripes are too in the front in their body to be a Thylacine. My second thought, from the apparent big head and the way it moves (hips lowered), it resembled a hyena to me. But it doesn't seem to have ears big enough, they also wouldn't make sense in context of the movie, and hyenas usually have spots instead of stripes. A quick search showed me that there are striped hyenas, and from pictures it looks kind of similar, but the snout doesn't seem to match. Also, they don't occur in Europe, according to Wikipedia.
So at this point I'm in doubt if it's a striped hyena (that doesn't seem to make sense to me), another real animal that I don't know, or if it's a fictional creature, some animal "modified" specifically for the movie (painted, extra/less fur, artificial modifications in height, body size, ear size, etc). Although that also doesn't make sense.
Any pointers appreciated, sorry if this should belong in scifi or another SE.
