Report from George Markie
A lady, who works for Sky Television, was driving home to Strathmiglo, Fife, in the early hours when she spotted a large animal at the side of the road. Initially she thought this was a deer, but as she drew alongside she realised it was a cat, large and black and shrinking against the fence to her right. Beyond the fence is a paddock and the Lomond Hills beyond that, wooded in places, grassy in others, with plenty of sheep, deer and rabbits - ideal habitat for a leopard.
