Default What is this animal? Game cam pic

So one ofneighbors of our family property in PA got this on his cuddeback.

My logic says it's a bobcat, however the head and rear end don't really look like those I have seen on bobcats in the past. I have spent a lot of time watching them too, last year I had a family w/ a mom and kittens under my stand for several hours.

What do you guys think?

(excuse the T-rex in the background as a joke LOL)

I took this pic and bew it up and it looks like the tail is long and curling back and away to make it appear short. I think it may be a mountain lion! I will try to repost the pic later.

Some are short and squatty soome are tall and lean like the one in your pic. Check out the tail. It looks just like your pic.

That would be a Mountian lion/ Cougar, where was that pic taken? To big to be a bobcat, and the tail is to long and the head is to rounded to be a bobcat..A bob cats ears are more pointed and a cougar they are more rounded... The first pic is a bobcat and the second is a Mt lion also notice the fur a cougars fur is more sleak and the bobcats is moer fluffy, Deffently a Mt.lion

Bobcat ,but a real nice one.Tailscan vary just like deer can be different colors. I seen regular house cats born with Bob tails why cant a bobcat have a little longer tail. The ears give it away

I gotta agree with bowfreak. The bobcat I took last year, looks nothing like that pic you took. I think the ears are the biggest giveaway on it.

If it were a cougar his tail would have to be pretty far out to the side. look at the tail on the above bobcat pic. It's not that short! Check out the length on this cougar:
