Report from Mark Fraser
Male driver and male passenger both approx mid twenties driving to Irvine from Kilmarnock along the by-pass. (Around the area of Lake Dyke Mill) As approaching Moorfield roundabout (or just after will verify when check the area) as they approached the brow of the hill they saw a large, "bigger than any dog" cat-like animal. It jumped into the middle of the road, barely touching the ground and then onto the verge and away over the fields.
Golden colour, at first they thought it was a dear, but in reality they knew it was no such thing....smooth, short haired, light brown. The time was apprx 23 to 23.30 hrs and it was dark....they saw the animal in profile only.
