I have just come back from the Galloway area of South West Scotland, and was informed that there appears to be an active Big Cat up there.
A local hunter (a sceptic when I met him last year!) who worked at the factory I visited, told me of an incident at the end of 98. He was out at night with some others "Lamping" foxes, when a fox was picked up in the powerful light.
Suddenly, a very large animal bounded out the forest and knocked the fox over, before bounding away. The gentleman and his companions were certain it looked and acted like a very large cat of Panther size.
The fox was found to have suffered a serious wound to its side, with a piece of the shoulder ripped out. There have been numerous other reports of Big black Cats, in this remote area of vast forests to the East of Stranraer.
