A wildlife camera took a photograph of an animal. Unfortunately this is the only picture my camera collected. This picture was taken in the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. The distance from the camera to the subject is a few meters, and the height of the camera off the ground was probably about 40 - 50 cm.
Is this animal a lynx? It looks like it might have those fine tufts on its ears and a reduced tail.
While I generally try to avoid cross-posting, I have started pooling my observations into iNaturalist. This photo can be found as Observation 110929888.
The lynx is between 73 and 107 cm (29 and 42 in) in head-and-body length and stands 48–56 cm (19–22 in) tall at the shoulder; females weigh around 5–12 kg (11–26 lb) while males weigh around 6–17 kg (13–37 lb).
The adult bobcat is 47.5 to 125 cm (18.7 to 49.2 in) long from the head to the base of its distinctive stubby tail, averaging 82.7 cm (32.6 in); the tail is 9 to 20 cm (3.5 to 7.9 in) long. Its "bobbed" appearance gives the species its name. An adult stands about 30 to 60 cm (12 to 24 in) at the shoulders.
Without a clearer image or a better sense of scale I cannot say which. Their silhouette is just too similar.
