Default what are these tracks ?

Sorry if this post is in the wrong spot but did not know where to post. Where I hunt I found these tracks.They are as large as the back of my hand. The green thing is a latex glove I used for size comparison but did not get it in the pics very good. I went online and they look like cougar tracks but we are not supposed to have cougars in Indiana, although there have been unconfirmed sightings. Can anyone identify them?

I think they are too big for a bobcat unless the bobs are bigger than I think.

could be bobcat..but there are too many toe inprints...unless its walking in its own track. i dont think its a dog of any type cause i dont see claws. pretty neat tracks though!

Don't be too surprised if it's a wolf. We have wolves in southern Wis. One was found in Indiana a few years back dead. It had a collar on it so they knew where it came from.

yea they say there are no cougars in pa either, but i saw one a couple years back near oil creek. pretty cool, heard it growl too. i would say either a wolf, cougar, or bobcat.

Some kind of feline looks to me. Don't see any claw mark typical of canines. Bobcats have got nice sized feet. Wouldn't put it past it. I live in Indiana too and a cougar wouldn't be out of the question.

Cougars and bobcats only have 4 toes. if you can find some scat and take a picture I can check my guide books and get you a better idea. You can put a trail camera in the area and bait it with some meat and see what comes along.

Still hard to tell in that photo.
