Thanks to Niki for sending from NW DC:
“Certainly looks like a mountain lion other than the stripes (Google suggests it could be an adolescent?). Would love a biologist to weigh in!”
The Neighbors video (uploaded September 15th) says:
“Caught this on video last night around 4 am. Does not look like a domestic cat…looks a lot like a mountain lion. We live right next to rock creek park, so it’s possible it came from there? Has anyone seen this animal before? Or does anyone have a pet that looks awfully like a mountain lion around here? Worried about my small, fat house cat.”
If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Friends of the White Whale Society.
