Some Dallas Street Services workers spotted some sort of wild cat in the greenbelt in South Dallas.

Here’s a cell phone pic one of the guys snapped:

Up top, you can see some animal crouching under a branch. Not a great picture, but it’s all I have.

But I learned plenty from doing this story. First, in the middle of South Dallas is a bobcat’s Beverly Hills…

We found some tracks that looked like a bobcats….but since I’m not an expert tracker, I couldn’t be sure.

I spoke to an expert at the Dallas Zoo. He told me there are actually 4 types of wild cats in Texas: Bobcat, Mountain Lion, Ocelot and Jagarundi.  I have never heard of a jagarundi, but here’s a pic.

Here’s some pictures of bobcats and other wild cats found in Texas:
