The fourth picture, the cat on the right looks like he might be Ocelot.

WOW... I think you are right... That explains why it was so much larger. I'll see if I can get some better pictures.

I left a message for the Collin County GW to let them know of this rare sighting. From reports, there are only 80-120 of these in the wild in Texas.

I think Plano is a bit out of the known range of Ocelots. You might could talk to someone at the TAMU extension center in Richardson, or a Game Warden.

Plano ISD Alderidge Elementary... home of the Ocelots.

Come on guys, ocelot? Ocelots home range is limited to Deep South texas with only about 100 cats in the wild. They are much more marked up than that cat and they have about a 16 in tail. That's just a family group of bobcats. Most likely a mother and last years kittens still hanging around. Just a pretty bobcat with "rosettes" that is what those markings are called. Pretty cat, but not an ocelot.
