Hard to tell the size of the top two tracks in the image but the Y shape gait and forest and field was a big clue, combined that with the asymmetrical foot print at the bottom of the pic which is characteristic of lagomorph , I'm fairly sure its a Hare (front left ?) though not %100 on this one, its got a bit of a otter look about it with the size and the toes spread-out because of the snow but I cant see a fifth toe, otter to can leave a y shape gait trail to when bounding, I would need to follow the trail a bit.
Just as a side note,
Cats can, but only very rarely show any sign of claw marks. here's the only picture I have ever taken of a cat showing claw marks in a track. The Cat was stalking the crow across a drying out stream bed over some very fine wet clay silt.
I have other pics of cat tracks in mud but this stuff was exceptionally fine ,you can see the cat's toe pads have opened up a bit and some sign of slipping in the track with movement in the claw marks, as to whether the cat was ether trying to spread its weight or gain extra grip with its claws , I don't know, probably both.
Here's one for all you track lovers. Found on a well worn badger highway well away from human habitation and walkers. I go there regularly and the only people you see are the occasional serious mountain bikers....
Hi guys. I realise I may be a bit late to the party but this looks to me like domestic cat tracks. A large cat but nothing too large. Regular domestic cat tracks are usually up to 4 cm long. These seem a bit longer than that. Footprints size is often exaggerated in soft wet ground and melting snow. These tracks were left in mud and are a bit smeared too.
Hi, yes it´s a cat, badger got more bear-like shape of print and VERY distinct claws, always visible
To 21st cent. - you are exactly right, it´s hare, and also is true that on some occasions you can get claw marks even from cats, just like you posted
