See Lein Tree Gouges for photos concerning this encounter.
Kingston, Moray. A large panther was seen on the road area going up the Lein when me and my girl friend seen it sprinting towards the bushes at a rate that no animal I know of here can run, because it got frightened by the noise of the car.
It was about 3-4 ft in height and very large, when we went up there for a walk about an hour later there was big cat pug marks on the road.
They were about 4 inches in diameter.
I have some pictures of scratches on the trees up the Lein.
