Bobcats have short stumpy tails. This cat obviously has a long tail.
I really just think this is a house cat. Maybe feral, maybe your own. The body structure of house cats can mimic a cougar. They are both felines,
Of course, if it is a feral it could very well be eating your chickens.
Another possibility as to what is eating your chickens is a fox or a coyote. I don't know if they are native to the area, but it is something to look
at. Don't forget about hawks and other birds of prey as well.
Are you finding the evidence of eaten chickens in the morning, like they were eaten at night? Time of day could clue you into to which native predator
is eating your birds.
I'd also like to add:
It looks like someone is sitting in the driver's seat of the truck wearing a pink shirt. It could just be something in the truck or a trick of
lighting, but if there is someone there, I think they would have noticed the mystery cat. Did anyone get into the truck that day?
