What do you do when your trail cam at work gets a photo of an intriguing critter whose identity isn’t immediately obvious? You post it online and see what people say, of course.
Personally I think it’s a bobcat – the posture just looks very feline, and you can see some very bobcat-ish barring on those front legs. (I think that dark spot that looks a bit like a nose on a long snout is actually a shadow or a spot on its fur.) But suggestions on my work’s Facebook page also include fox, chupacabra, and hodag. Never let it be said that the people of northern Wisconsin don’t have a sense of humor.
