The morning mail brings a forwarded e-mail from the Bayonne Property Owners Association with photos of a feline spotted amid the lush manicured lawns of Hickory Creek, where neighbors report some recent suspicious attacks on dogs. Add it to your urban wildlife file.

I'll add a rear view, given a debate on whether this is a bobcat or some brawny domestic hybrid.

UPDATE: He's asked not to be identified to avoid the hassle, but the Times has spoken with the man who took the two photos with his iPhone through a window beside his front door. He insists the photos, taken last Friday, are legitimate and unretouched. A New York native, he claims no wildlife biology expertise, but said he never saw a cat that big in Manhattan.
