That kittie seems a little bit bigger than a bobcat (has a longer tail too)...

Edited with a larger image. To me, that tail looks pretty long for a bobcat. I think the "spots" you are seeing is just the grain-like effect of the night shot? But if you're right, that's one LARGE bobcat...

Looks like a bobcat to me, too. Dark bars on the front legs is the give away.

I guess it could be a lion. But the more I look at that picture it could be a Chupacabra. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

I resampled the image and converted it to greyscale. I also removed some of the chromatic aberration (noise) from the low light. Anyone change their mind as to what it might be? Still might be a bit iffy to be exact.http://www.treeofkno...s/BobOrLion.jpg

That's pretty big for a bobcat. I thought it was a bob at first too but that tail and those legs say cougar. It's a young one but deffinitely bigger than a bobcat. Is there any rocky areas on your property??

There are a few rock patches near the top of the hill that is directly on the north side of my place, below the rocks and above the pictured fenceline is a VERY thick brushy area (I've made a few unsuccessful attempts to hike through it), and 50 yards over the east side fence of my place is a small pond. There are NO houses within 1/2 mile back there. Also, there have been many cougar sightings within a 30 mile radius of where I live (including several that were killed by cars while crossing the road). But then we had a bobcat hanging around our house last spring too...
