Report from George Markie
Dundee delivery driver, John Drurie reported seeing a large black cat the size of a Labrador.
The sighting occurred on Sunday 25 th January at 5.40 am on the Balmerino to Bottomcraigs road in Fife.
Just as he was turning into Bottomcraigs he saw the animal in the road less than 10 ft away.
When the headlights of his vehicle lit up the animal it "sprang and virtually leapt over the fence and away."
There have been reports of similar animals in north east Fife since November 1995.
