Not unless it's near a nuclear waste dump. I saw a pic of one from around here years ago that supposedly weighed right at 50# and looked like it did, but even that is really, really unusually huge. All of them I've ever killed or caught have been between 15-30#

Someone needs to go to Oconee WMA and hunt some "cats". You can't miss their spoor. It's all, over the road. Looks like human poops with hair and bones in it, the old ones are all chalky looking.

I got a 40lb+ As I understand it the record weight for a coon is over 100 lb.

I have personally seen and had hands on a 55 lb bob cat. That was many years ago and in the mnt's of Tenn.. this thing was HUGE!! A 75 lber would be like a small cougar!

Which means nothing else but expect the unexpected!!

Must be a lynx x bobcat hybrid.
