I think there is one that lives in that area. It's irrelevant whether it's an escaped pet, or it wandered in from somewhere else, or whatever - it's there.

If it is an escaped pet, that's sad. These kinds of animals should not be kept as pets, as the recent Ohio tragedy underscores.
This is why I love this forum. Thanks for sharing.

I tried to rationalize it as a pet dog, or a coyote, but after getting a nice long glance (thanks to the cat moving at a casual pace across the road) it had to be a large cat.
