Holyoke, Mass. (WWLP) – A 22News viewer sent us a photo of what appears to be a Bobcat.

The photo was provided to us from Douglas Clark.

Clark says he snapped the photo as the animal was chasing a squirrel through the yard.

This was in the area of Lower Westfield Road and Homestead Avenue in Holyoke.

It was around 5:30 a.m. Friday.

22News was also sent a video of a Bobcat in Holyoke at Wykoff Country Club.

It may have been the same bobcat in the photo.

Bobcats are the only wild cat in Massachusetts and are quite common in western parts of the state.
