I wouldn't mess with them. You could wake up one night and see them through your window, walking up to your house in robes. Haha, horror movie style.

You didn't actually see a big cat chasing any kangaroo though, right?

Ive worked with natural resources departments that trap feral cats and seen some monsters. A feral cat can easily grow to the same size as a puma. The size is not the issue - the head and facial features of a puma are very different. Everyone always talks about seeing a big cat but no-one yet can produce evidence of an actual puma or proper big cat. Need a good photo of the head.

Hi all,

Just recently went on a hunting trip in an area close to where I had my possible sighting. A good friend of mine, who is a local in that area says there are regular sightings of ABCs out there, really has me aching to catch one on camera to finally put this thing to bed.

Would be good. Countless people have tried but only come back with large feral cats. Just take a camera with you at all times haha.

Welcome to UM.  The conservation dept said we had no Cougars here even with lots of sightings.  Finally someone killed one and now they believe it.

This is what I can't understand - all these 'sightings' but no-one can properly record anything on a camera or phone.

Mind you, if they did we would probably all claim it's fake :-D

Every time someone has taken a photo of a so-called big cat everyone says "oh, that's just a normal cat".
I still reckon they're both right - it is a "normal" cat, just a bloody big one!

Yes I reckon most likely all these sighting are just very large feral cats. Like in the picture I posted a few pages back, they can get huge.

Thinking I should maybe start a thread on the pine forest and other similar places in the "Urban legends" section. Thoughts?

i wouldnt be so fast to dismiss the claim off as a large feral cat. I live in OH and years ago there were sightings of lions in my area.. not mountain lions but African Lions. Now of course those that didnt want to believe laughed it off as nothing more than mistaken identity. Come to pass there was a man that had over 60 exotic animals including lions, tigers, jaguar, bears and a plethera of other species that lived just on the outskirts of town in the area which the sightings had occured. The lions that everyone had been seeing were escaped lions from this mans collection, a collection that became famous in 2011 when he decided to let them ALL loose on the general population. So.. for me when people claim to see a big cat i for one do not dismiss them outright... but that is just me ...based on my experience. After all it is easier to relate/believe when there is an experience that takes place that is similar.

Yeah for sure. Can be very creepy at night, myself I haven't really seen anything that far out but maybe other members have. Because of this thread I found out there were a few members on here that are from Perth, maybe there are more.
