Default Fenney Bobcat or Cougar ?

My trail-cam picked up this video image not 10 minutes ago out here in Fenney. Is it a Bobcat or a Cougar ? Definitely not the usual coyote.

Perhaps somewhere around here a habitat has been disturbed? It looks like a bobcat. Thank you for sharing.

That's a Bobcat.

I punched up the video some in Adobe premiere and you cannot see a tail. The hind quarters of a Bobcat are much different as well.

Depends on height - if you can tell from the angle/position of the cam. If the animal appears to be about the size of beagle or spaniel, then bobcat. If the animal appears to be bigger, about the size of a retriever, then mountain lion (or puma or cougar depending on where you are from).

It's nice to see wildlife like that in the area.

After comparing to other Bobcat videos on YouTube I am almost certain it is a Bobcat.
