Cougar and bobcat tracks

These two feline tracks – cougar and bobcat – were found Tuesday, Dec. 29 in southern Bayfield County, south of Cable, west of Highway 63.

Retired wolf expert Adrian Wydeven, formerly with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and his wife, Sarah Boles, a part-time wolf tracker for the DNR, were called to a private woods south of Cable and west of Highway 63 on Tuesday, Dec. 29, to confirm the presence of cougar tracks.

When Wydeven and Boles arrived at the site they did, indeed, find cougar tracks — round feline impressions 3½ inches long and 3¾ inches wide. As the two followed the tracks they noticed the tracks merged with smaller feline tracks they identified as a bobcat.
