Err, so this bloke shot the puma to prove that it did exist (past tense now, obviously).

DNA tests have revealed a mysterious cat shot in Gippsland was a gigantic feral domestic cat.
. . .
Monash University experts analysed a sample from the tail of the cat, shot by Melbourne hunter Kurt Engel, and have concluded there was a 98 per chance it was a feral cat.
. . .
In tests against DNA from feral cats, the tail DNA recorded several matches of 100 per cent and was always at least 97 per cent similar.
. . .
But when compared against DNA from big cats including leopards, cheetahs, lynx and tigers, the results were a 90 per cent match or less.
