I see cougar mania is alive and well in other parts of the country as well. Definitely a bobcat in the first picture and fairly average size at that. Not a lot of belly fur yet because it is Summer and they dont have their guard hairs and heavy fur now. Also, the second picture in Shadowace's postis not even a mountain lion. It is a Lynx. Note the big feet and tufts on the ears.Also the tufts of hair that run down the side of the face below the ears. A cougar's tail is nearly as big around as your arm and the full length of its body. Kind of hard to hide that much tail at any angle.

I say its a lynx.
I don't see the tufts of hair coming off the ears that are prominent on lynxes.

I would have to say its a pretty typical bobcat. I believe the pic posted by ShadowAce is a lynx.

I believe it is a Bobcat. The tail is way to skinny to to be a mountain lion. In the larger picture the ears appear to be more pointed, and there appears to be spots on it's belly.

Bobcat
