On Little Jenkins Mountain near Washington last Saturday, Pat Choate spotted this big cat in his backyard and managed to take a photo before the creature disappeared. “He is amazingly swift and beautiful,” said Choate, who thought it might be a lynx. Others say it was a bobcat, but either way you don’t see either very often for very long.
