Mystery large cat sighting divides experts

6 posts in this topic

The sighting Wednesday of an enormous cat roaming a field in northern Mississippi has local residents on the lookout – and perhaps a bit on edge.

David Sluder captured video footage of the cat from his vehicle while in a fast-food restaurant line in Hernando. In the footage Sluder posted to Facebook, he says, "Man, I'm 100 yards away from this cat right now. I don't know what kind of cat it is… but this thing is huge."

I wonder why no one measured the height of the grass to make a few calculations as to how tall the animal was? The animal control officer was there, and likely had a can of bear spray in her vehicle for protection.

Interesting.  The size of the cat could be determined by measuring the height of the grass.I wonder if that will be done. It could settle the size of t he animal.

This is called photogrammetry.
