Perhaps, it's only active at night.

Researchers to trap mysterious cat-fox animal
...Swiss-based environmental group WWF said on Monday its researchers photographed the strange animal, which looks like a cross between a cat and a fox, in the dense, central mountainous rainforests of Borneo...
...Researchers hope to confirm the discovery by setting cage traps to catch a live specimen, but warn that Indonesian government plans to clear the rainforest to create the world's largest palm oil plantation may interfere with plans, WWF said...
So, they plan to clear the rainforest. They find a new creature, but it's habitat is going to be razed. That really sucks. It seems there is very little protection for the non-human creatures on this planet. When I read this story, I was reminded of last bit of the song,
The Last Chant, by Jim Stafford...
Sometimes I wonder what you'd do
If a swamp moved in on you
Scratched on your screen, slipped down your waterspout,
Tapped you on yr'shoulder'n'said 'You move out.'
