SIGHTING, SCOTLAND: Expert claims animal likely to be exotic breed
An experienced photographer claims to have spotted a "big cat" near Alves.
Gazette snapper Eric Cormack was out on a shoot near Alves Old Parish Church with a colleague on work experience when he spotted something dart across his vision in his viewfinder.
He said: "It bounded across the field around 300 yards away - it's tail was really long and moved differently to a domestic cat. It swallowed up the ground really quickly with its long legs."
Eric immediately changed from a wide-angle lens to a zoom but the animal was only in view for 30 seconds.
