So what kind of track is this??????

Post  Mountainman Vic on Mon Aug 25, 2014 1:05 pm

I had the entire family out for a hike yesterday afternoon. We came across this track and it had me scratching my head. It could have been a bear track but it didn't look like one. If it was it was small for a bear. This track had a fairly small roundish pad and the over all track was round....... Like a cat. It was the only track I could find.

looks like a cat track to me Vic.  Though I have not seen a bunch of bear tracks so I am not sure what they look like.

Looks like a cat track to me with the way the toes are so pronounced. ith bears it seems the pad is more pronounced than the toes.

Okay after a little research, I'm thinking it's just a bear track even though the shape was a little off. I can't remember for sure and it's hard to tell from the pic but I'm almost certain that there were 5 toes and cats only have 4.

I have to go with a cat track Vic. If it was a bear , there should be 5 , and just looking at the pic I can only see 4. Plus the bear should be more in a straight line compared to the pad, not going along with the roundness of the pad. Plus I see no sign of claw marks in the dirt, usually you will see claw marks with a bear in the soft stuff.
