The body shape and snout look like a North American Tapir, but markings look a little different.

Tapir? Tongue firmly implanted in cheek?

I'd bet my car on bobcat. Honestly, it seems clear enough that I'm surprised it's even a question. The head is obviously blurred as is much of the body. It's obviously moving rather quickly. The left front leg is still enough to be quite clear, as is the coloring on the ears and the rear right leg. The classic tuft of hair on the right cheek is pretty obvious too.

color scheme says bobcat and a very emaciated one at that.

Can you ID this animal?

Legs look too long for a bobcat.

Legs too long? Seriously?

That is so obviously a bobcat. I am flabbergasted by arguments against it. The picture is a little fuzzy but it couldn't more clearly be a bobcat if it was painted "Bobcat" in blaze orange on it's side.

I agree, the white tips on the ears were the "smoking gun" to me... Dang

Bobcat? Nonsense. Its obviously an African ant eater whose tail got run over by a plow and cut off.

Absolutely a bobcat. The white "windows" on the backs of the ears is a key identifier.

The height looks very tall to be a south Alabama bobcat, but the markings scream bobcat. What county is this in?

Yea the front left leg gives it away. Maybe it heard the camera going off and tucked it's ears back as it took off?

Bobcat. The inside of the left-front leg has the tell tail markings of a bobcat characteristic. Plus that 4" tail as well tells me it is a forest kitty cat (bobcat)

That proves it's a Chupacabra. Chupacabra pictures are always blurry.

Held the dog up in front of the computer screen to see what she thought. Based on her response I have to say cat.........

Louann is cleaning up the dog urine.......and not happy I showed the dog the picture.

What you fellas never seen a snipe before?

Seriously though it's a bobcat. If you have ever seen one up close you would have no doubt.
