Report from Chris Smith
In April, it was reported that two years ago a local resident hit a large beast on the A833 Kiltarlity to Drumnadrochit road. Alan Sime. a vet then with Scottish Agricultural College, sent hairs from the bumper for analysis in Edinburgh. The tests found that they belonged to no known British mammalian species.
John Cathcart has determined to track down the hair sample and if necessary fund further research himself into their origins. Experts say that as many as 100 big cats may be roaming Britain.
