ENGLEWOOD, FL (WWSB) - A woman in Englewood, FL, captured a picture of an unidentified large cat sneaking up on a bird in her back yard.

Carol Bierwagen captured the image while she was drinking her morning coffee.

The cat could be either a large bobcat or a Florida panther, an endangered subspecies of cougar.

Englewood is in west-central Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. The Florida panther lives primarily in the Everglades, but has been spotted further north. Bobcats are found throughout the state.
