    Wasn't there a panther up arthurs pass..... Having seen some of the feral down here it's amazing how big they will get, 20+kgs seen photos of guys holding their back legs (forearms at right angles and the guys 6foot) and the cats ears are on the ground.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the were escaped circus or pets though

    Not really. Everything in Australia is trying to kill them anyway so it is just anther hazard.....and in this case, one that is not really a common threat, unlike snakes, dogs, crocs, spiders, sharks, even the weather and enviroment.....have I missed anything? Of course I have. The list is too large to write them all down!!!!

    never understood the appeal of ozzie most of the wildlife wants to kill you and the place is full of ockers moaning about the kiwis coming over working and showing them up and not many trophies in the cabinet to look at either.
