Scottish 'Big Cat' on prowl again...

An off-duty Ministry of Defence police dog handler has taken a photo of what he claims is a panther-sized big cat.

"Knowing the width of the rail tracks in Chris's video is 4ft 8.5in, the animal photographed by him is clearly in excess of 4ft and as such is certainly not a domestic cat.

"Initial first impressions are very exciting, as I think this could be one of the best pieces of footage of a big cat in the UK ever."

It's body length only just stretches between 2 Rail Sleepers and look at it "under" the Cow Parsley.

It's a common Black Moggie

I tend to agree with wee eddie, and believe its just a black moggie.
My 4 year old male cat is a strapping young fellow and I feel would look the same in that footage apart from his white chest.

For crying out loud, it's an ordinary moggy. Check the angle of the shot and the cow parsley. I despair.

Thank you.

As my Jewish clients would say - 'from my head into your mouth'.

It's a cat.

I have just noticed a flying saucer above the cat.

You're all much too glib about this. There is a definite mystery here.

I thought it was a black labrador!

Dogs masquerading as cats should definitely be investigated.

Did anyone else recognise an obscene phone call while watching that

Didn't Mel Blanc have a hit with "I Tawt I Taw A Puddy Tat" in 1951?

Its nothing more than a large black domestic cat with a death wish.Railway lines are dangerous places to practise ones balance on.
