    So a neighbor said they have seen a mountain lion come out of some brush along the fields edge on our property along a county road. A few weeks later my mom said she seen it in the road. I called the GW but he said we don’t have mountain lion in our area. Laughing to my self I said Ok
    As I was coming back from my deer stand I have to walk under a RR bridge and low and behold there were these tracks in the mud that were not there 4 hrs earlier. Looks like a mountain lion to me. What do y’all think? 00B8A595-F894-44E5-A48D-A1924F6BA59F.jpeg

    No claws, not a dog. Dogs always leave nail impressions.

    Cats have 5 toes on the front feet but only 4 on the hind foot.
    Track looks deep enough to show a dew claw if it was there.
    I guess cat, any other tracks you could show us?

    Domestic dog, center pad is close though, it's not wide enough at the top for a cat.

    Yep. That center pad is well defined and clearly not a cat.

    Well, the dog could have been tracking a mountain lion.

    I’m not arguing if it’s a dog or cat but you would think if it was a dog it would be more pointed and leave claw marks
