A cardboard cutout of a typical-size cougar, or mountain lion, left, is compared with a photograph of an apparent bobcat in the same tree from the same vantage point in northern Minnesota. The photo on the right was initially believed to be of a cougar, but when a Minnesota wildlife official visited the site with the cardboard cutout site Monday, he concluded the animal was too small.
