Report from Mark Fraser
A male motorist was travelling along the Dundonald road heading for Kilmarnock. It was apprx 21.00hrs and still light.
As he neared a large ranch type house just passed the Fraser's Garden Centre, he saw a large cat-like animal walking on the side of the road towards him. It was apprx. the size of a "Fully grown greyhound, only fuller in body and golden-fawn in colour."
As the animal caught sight of the car it ran off very quickly into adjacent fields.
The same witness has also had another sighting but this time during the last week of August, 1996. Again he was driving but this time he was heading towards Drybridge from Dundonald, it was late and dark. The animal was once more at the side of the road and ran off as he approached. The description he gave was similar although it appeared darker in colouring, but this maybe due to the lighting conditions at the time.
3 rd and late August 1996
