Big cat spotted on Moray golf course
A MYSTERIOUS big black cat has reportedly been spotted prowling around a coastal golf course, in what is just the latest in a long list of similar sightings in Moray during the past year.
The animal was seen twice last week at Buckpool Golf Club, Buckie, following reports just a few days earlier of a similarly large black feline being viewed near a railway line at Portgordon.
The sighting by one of the club’s greenkeepers was followed last Thursday by second and third eye-witness accounts, courtesy of golf partners John Coull and Joe Smith.
Perhaps better used to contending with misplaced balls that have landed in the bushes, both men got far more than they bargained for when they saw the animal leap from its hiding place beyond the rough.
Mr Coull said he and Mr Smith were close to the sixth tee, between 9.30 and 10am, when they spotted the animal.
Despite the creature appearing and then disappearing quickly, and being about 25 yards away, Mr Coull said he is confident in what he saw.
