This was seen near Bunbury?
I'm in Perth, but later in the week I am heading down to Collie, so potentially in the neighbourhood for a big cat.
I found this
The premise that there were cougars in Western Australia was widely believed during the 1970s.
There are several theories as to how they were introduced. The most popular theory was that United States servicemen brought four cougar kittens to Western Australia during World War II; they eventually grew too big for captivity and were released—two at Fremantle and two at Bunbury. Another theory is that cougars escaped from a traveling circus that was involved in an accident between Bridgetown and Nannup around 1961. The circus theory has often been referenced to support the allegation that cougars were responsible for the deaths of around 2000 sheep in the Duranillin area in the late 1970s.

On a related note, for those interested, look up video on youtube and search on 'Thyacinine' or 'Sid Slee', you wil find it interesting.

...., some go as far as to say there's a cover up by local government entities like the ranger, and parks and wildlife etc etc.

Looks like an over exposed photo, hence why there's not many shadows.

A very large domestic cat... look how close it is to the nearest tree above the shoulder. Not as big as a panther, looks more like the size of a lynx or bobcat.

The tail is coming down and following the back right leg, you can see the tip of the tail coming out off where the ankle is.

The cat in question is bigger than some people are thinking.. The tree to the direct front that splits into two?
You cannot wrap your hand around that tree. Maybe if you have bigger hands than me.
The cat is like 60 lbs...
originally posted by: KnightLightIf you are used to having cats.. You will notice this is not a "cat" Look at muscles.. Look at neck. Look at the stride.. Look at the ears..
I have had 30 lb cats... Straight killers.. They are nowhere near that big.. That is NOT a "house cat"
That cat has an issue though.. It doesn't seem to be where it is.. If someone can explain the orange shadows.. But otherwise... It looks kinda funky..
The size though.. I am over 6 ft tall. That cat would come near my knee. Not up to my knee. But high up on my calf.
