(VANDERBURGH CO.) - A snapshot of a large wild cat in a backyard in Vanderburgh County is going viral.

The picture was taken on a property on the west side in the wooded area.

Thanks to Mike Kappert and his cameras, he is sharing what the cat does in fields at night. The photo was taken with one of three cameras that Kappert has on his property.

He says he planted a food plot for deer, but the bobcats are using it has a hunting ground.

It's not just one bobcat that he caught on camera, there are several of them that roam his property at night.

Kappert told 14 News that he had three trail cameras set up and he checks them once a week.

"It's kind of neat, kind of like Christmas time. You can't wait to see what's on it you know. All of a sudden, bam, there's a bobcat carrying a rabbit," Kappert said.

Some 14 News Facebook fans have said that it's not a bobcat, but a cougar.

Kappert says he's pretty certain they're bobcats.
