Exclamation Trail cam pic bobcat or mountain lion???

previous pics at the same time of this night there were two full grown does running then this pic poped up, and it was chasing the deer.

the trail cam is high on a tree facing down a hill, so its hard to compare the brush to the cat.

bobcat won't chase a full size doe..

here in ND we've had a rash of mountain lion sightings and they've had to put a couple down so I'd say it's a mountain lion

Does a mountain lion have black tipped ears? Cuz the one in that photo does. You should have someone with Photoshop play with that photo. They can adjust different settings and make the picture a little more clear.

My vote is bobcat due to the black tipped ears and shorter legs.
