Thanks to George Markie for the following article. George reports "The Angus cat popped up again. This time it was a close up sighting and true to form, the location of this sighting was next to the disused railway line that runs through Angus. Furthermore, it was sighted by Lunan Water. Following Lunan Water eastwards lead to Inverkeilor and finally Lunan Bay, where recent sightings have occurred.
Yet more "evidence' of a large black cat prowling across Angus has been unearthed by a Wellbank man, who found huge paw prints in the snow in his back garden.
Pensioner Dave Whyte said he opened the door of his house on Monday morning to find his "first foot" had seemingly been a large animal whose prints he says, were not left by a domestic pet.
"They're far too big to have been made by a normal dog. My alsation Sherry's paw print is much smaller than those ones," Dave said.
"It looks like the animal had a walk right round the garden then headed off somewhere else.
"There are sheep in the next field to us and they didn't seem to have been worried, so it looks like whatever it was just came in the garden and left."
Dave took some digital video shots of he prints, alongside Sherry's paw mark, to show the scale and size of the prints.
"I just couldn't believe what I was seeing, they were definitely not made by a domestic animal."
