That's definitely not a big cat because it shows claws. Cat's retract their claws when they walk. It's most likely some sort of dog or wolf.

Uhhh, pawz1992, the cheetha is also a big cat, but it's claws don't retract... look it up.

Ya, defiantly an animal from the dog family. It can't be a cougar. The best bet is a wolf or a large dog, like a Rottweiler or a Great Dane or something like that...

K9 for sure. Felines have much more pad, retractable claws and different toe configuration. Basically a housecat print but much larger.

Definetly a member of the dog family.

Definitely canine. I'd wager it is the print of a coyote. If it were a cat there would be no claw prints as a feline only projects claws for gripping or tearing, not while traveling.

the one in the left seems like a feline paw print but the middle is a canid

If you look at the main print, you can see the claws, indicating a canine, but to the left, there is an incomplete paw print which doesnt show claws. That would be a feline pawprint for sure. another thing to remember is Canine paws are usually narrower, while feline pawprints spread out more, due to more space to retract their claws. the incomplete paw print would be believable as a cougar print, while the complete is canine

My brother was the one that took this picture. Someone noticed the print on the left with no claw prints. That definitely puzzles me.
