Report from Mike Inglis
It looks like one of our cats is the first to show its face this year.
Ill fill in a sightings form when I obtain more details of the sighting if possible.
The Incident happened at 23.50 Hours on the 3rd January.
A Motorist was driving on the outskirts of Tayport at around 23.50 hours when they had to break very sharply to avoid colliding with a "Big Black Cat about the size of a Tiger" on the road in front of them.
It seems from the report that the Cat had been blinded by the vehicles lights and had run straight at the vehicle then veered of as the driver braked to avoid it.
GR was contacted almost immediately and being so close at hand was there very quickly at the scene.When GR got there he could find no trace or signs of the Cat.
The ground although frozen was not even white with frost in this instance,so no tracks etc to be found at the scene.
GR will pass on anymore details to me if they are forthcoming.
Good thing about this is we now know the cats out and about so bring on the snow so we can get down to some serious tracking.
