va bobcat

This picture has been making the rounds on Facebook and forums for a while. The person who sent it to me says it was killed here in Virginia (the hardwoods look right) but it is rumored to have come from a couple other states too (this is how these Interweb rumors work).

Anyhow, look at the size of that thing. If legit, from the looks of it, this cat would weigh maybe twice as much as the average Virginia bobcat, which tips the scales at 25 pounds max.

Something doesn’t look right about the head/neck? But who knows, it could be right, and the size of the critter is a camera angle thing.

Seen this picture before? What do you think?
