Report from Leo Martin
There have been dozens of big cat sightings in Argyll and Galloway. A Perth and Kinross district council employee, Mike Guild was camping with his friend Andy Young and their three children by Loch Ordie on the Atholl estate earlier this week. Early on Sunday morning they were wakened by the sound of a large animal prowling around their tents. "I shone my torch and it made a low gutteral sound like a big cat, then went off rapidly." Said Mr. Guild. He later took photographs and plaster casts of the creature's 4.5 inch paw prints which have been sent for analysis at the Royal Scottish Museum, Edinburgh.
