Karen was walking with her husband Mike and two friends, accompanied by their French hound Bree.
She said: 'Our dog had been running about chasing rabbits playfully, but became spooked by something.
'At one point we stopped, and Bree started barking quite loudly again, and had her tail between her legs as if she was frightened, I turned my head and that's when I saw something, about the same size as a medium-weight dog, with dark skin and strong legs, but no tail.'
'Bree ran off chasing it, and she disappeared into the woods. It took us about an hour to find her and there was no sign of the creature, which the witnesses says was as big cat.
Further comments, 24 th April 2002:
I find the subject facinating and was delighted to find such a comprehensive site especially with regards to Scotland. I was also really pleased to find that my own sighting in 2001 had been taken seriously and had been noted. Needless to say, since that sighting, I spend my driving/passenger time scanning just in case I'm lucky enough to have a second sighting
