This animal (pictured above) was spotted by Northgate High School in Walnut Creek by our friend, “Nova7″, who also gave us a description of the animal, which we all know is either a bobcat or a mountain lion.
I was walking in Walnut Creek near Northgate High (on the paved trail just across Castle Rock Road). I spotted what I thought was a bobcat. I was able to take a couple of photos. When I got home, I looked up bobcats on the web, and found out that they have short tails. The photos are a little fuzzy, but this animal had a very long tail with stripes on it. If it was a Mountain Lion it was young because it only weighed about 30 pounds.
Look at the photos, and tell us what you think.
Was it a mountain lion or a bobcat?
CLAYCORD NOTE: We’re thinking it’s a bobcat.
