Based on the long tail,  Joel thinks it's a domestic cat. Do you have any other pictures? Very interesting.

I agree, the only thing that throws me off a bit is the size and the hump on the back. How far south do wolverines range. Where abouts was the pic taken?

I thought wolverine too but their tails are not that long.  http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-wwhBEikrVn4/T3EamfKJY2I/AAAAAAAABa8/Y0K7at_qbeY/s1600/wolverine2.jpg

Also wondered about skunk,  but should be able to see the white?

thats a real head scratcher... its not a cat because its front legs seem to be shorter than the back kind of like a skunk or wolverine and yeah the humped up back is weird... it looks like it does have a round head like a cat...

this is a longshot but were there any tracks around that you noticed?

im very curious now

We have considered wolverine too but the tail looks too long and slim. Don't think these are cats way too big. Thought skunk as well but no stripe. This is around my moms farm near Lac La Biche.
