Bobcat sighting in Kitchener

Big Cat prints

I caught a glimpse of a very large cat, tan to light brown in colour, estimated to be about 3 feet long.

The location was a new building lot in Hidden Valley, Kitchener, Ontario around 4:15 pm today.

I followed the tracks as far as I could but they disappeared. I’ve attached photos of the paw prints and also the incredible leaps that the animal made by running away.

I measured the leap to be 6 ½ feet. Added my size 10 gloves for proportion.

Clearly not that of a domestic cat.

Hopefully that helps a bit.

Thank you for sending us these pictures and all the information.

I will also post this on our facebook page.
