Found These Paw Prints at my Barn in the Snow!!
Okay well according to the internet its a cougar/mountain lion. Want others opinions! The paw print was about 5 inches width!
Don't agree...cats as a species have retractable claws. Your print has clear claw marks.http://depts.washington.edu/natmap/p...nt-snow-sm.jpg
This is a photo of a puma print in snow.
http://k41.pbase.com/o6/65/431565/1/...print.4427.jpgThis is a bear print in mud...claws are clear. So may be a small bear...

Not bear...has to be cat or k9.
I looked at a lot of tracks...some cougar tracks had the claw marks but not many and not as clear...like this one
here is a bear
I personally think that it is probably either a wolf, or a large dog. I too can clearly see the claw marks, and cat prints don't show claw marks.
No way, canine and bear species have non retractable claws and therefore leave a claw print when leaving tracks. Feline species (excepting the cheetah, which I doubt that's what it was - even though that would be seriously cool!!) have a retractable claw and therefore don't leave claw tracks. Possibly a stray dog, or in an extreme case, a wolf, if you have them where you live?
P.S. I work volunteer at a zoo on the weekends and have seen the different tracks for myself.
Agree with the above post. Looks like a large dog, Felines don't leave claw marks, and bear *usually* show more claw. It could be a bear, but I vote big dog
A big cat track can show claw mark if its a deep track. It can also show claw mark if in is at an incline. On flat level ground you shouldn't see any claw mark.
This is a cougar track in snow.
nah i don't think it's a bear. bears have pretty wonky shapped bads. and the toes are big. i'm guessing either Coyote, Wolf, or a big dog
My black lab is about 100 lbs. His paw prints in snow or mud spread out to be MUCH bigger than his already big feet. I would put money on a large stray dog.
