Maybe this isn't a big deal but just curious.

I know most will not believe me as I have no pics for proof but I saw a Jaguarundi 2 days ago around 7:00 PM. I was driving north on Hwy 16 about 10 miles south of Comanche. It ran across the road and I watched it slip under a fence and into some brush after I pulled over. No I didn't hallucinate. I had Lasik eye surgery in March and have 20/13 vision so I know what I saw. smile Just didn't know they had been spotted that far north before. Anyone see 'em in that area before?

Just saw the last post on this topic. This seems to be old news. Oh well, it was still cool to see one.

I had one of my Turkey hunters spot something that looks like one a couple of years ago here in Breckenridge. He said it was about the size of a Bobcat with a long tail. He said it was a dark color.

I saw one near Breckenridge about a year ago. Didn't say anything about it as I figured no one would believe me. Maybe these are where the black panther stories are coming from. I was probably less than 10 feet from it before it took off. Very cool critter.

That is only a few miles from our lease. We have been there for 5 years and never seen any cats at all. I will keep an eye out.There is a high fence ranch across the road from us and the landowner said that they had found some of their breeder bucks dead and it looked like a big cat had done it but you know how that is.

I am sure it could not have been a house cat!!! TONGUE IN CHEEK

Call TPWD.....they will jump at a chance to see one.....or they may realize it was a house cat.

that is 100% a pic of a bobcat no question. If you know at all what a Jaguarundi looks like you will not confuse it with a house cat they can range in color from a dark redish to black their face is extremely ugly with large round eyes short rounded ears. They also have short legs and a long body with a long thick tail. Also just to add an Ocelot which i have personally seen in south Texas has been spotted up north and they are easy to recognize they are not much larger than a house cat if at all and they have many spots which have spots within spots they are short haired like a house cat and have a very long tail they dont have the long hair on the face and ears like a bobcat. people have seen boths these cats in north Texas and it seems like they are seen more up there than they are in south Texas where they acctually live so i have to doubt very much that people are actually seeing them.

I agree.......quite amazing they are studied and researched in South Texas.......rarley seen...... but this Northern Texas version is in everyone's back yard and on every deer lease. Just like that Boone and Crocket ghost deer that no one ever shoots.

Oh wait.....what is THAT common.....oh yeah.....a HOUSE CAT that can be pretty much any natural color.
