Report from Chris Smith
Twelve year old Robert Clarke reported a black Panther in Woodland near Craithie Church, Grampian, close to the Royal Estate of Balmoral, in early April.
He described the animal as 3 to 4 times the size of a domestic cat, with pointed ears, a long tail, and dark brown patches on the sides of its face. Robert says the large cat walked towards him, snarling and hissing. When it was about 7 feet away, Robert turned and ran.
