AUSTRALIAN SIGHTING - Big cat mystery latest in state's creature sightings

Mystery cat on the prowl in Glenwood, QLDTHERE'S nothing quite like a mystery animal sighting to divert attention from life's less-happy realities such as the global economic crisis.
So this week's reports of a big cat prowling the rural suburb of Glenwood, north of Gympie, have not only given some light relief on the news front, they have also reignited the age-old debate over the existence of mythical and mysterious creatures in Queensland.

From the Kilcoy Yowie to the Logan Bunyip; the Buderim Beast to the Gayndah Bear, this state has had more than its fair share of unexplained animal sightings over the decades.

Whole websites are now devoted to Australian cryptozoology, featuring regular blogs detailing the latest sightings, recording local legend and analysing every skerrick of data, from prints and poo to grainy photos and video clips.

And now the Glenwood Panther can be added - thanks to the quick thinking of Pepper Rd pensioner Colin Rossow, 67, who managed to take a plaster cast of a huge paw print in soft dirt near his grape trellis last week.READ MORE

  1. I was driving home from work at about 11:15pm on 4/6/14 when I saw this mountain lion like cat lying about a meter off the road. It was about 1 and 1/2 meters long and about the size of a German shepherd. It was just lying there licking it paw. I have seen many feral cats but never this size.
