Big Cat sighting near Wollemi National Park 11, Sep, 17.

“Hey guys, might sound crazy but I am absolutely sure I saw a black panther this afternoon at 5:40pm on bureen road around bureen/Doyle's creek area as I was heading towards jerries plains. Whatever it was it was jet black and was heading over the top of an embankment on the Wollemi national park side. It's tail was I would estimate at 2.5 - 3 feet long and curled at the end. I was amazed at how long the tail was. I didn't get a look at the front of it as it was almost over the top of embankment when I spotted it. I have heard of them being sighted out at burrendong dam but never thought I would come across one myself. Anyway guys just thought I would share with you.”

Possible Thylacine encounter in 1996 in Western Australia

The A.C.R.O. Received a report of a possible Thylacine encounter that took place in 1996 roughly 20 minutes South of Cervantes Western Australia,  16 minutes south of Cervantes is the Nambung National Park and around that area there is many farms and bushland. The sighting happened around the 28th of January 1996 and it had just turned dark, the eyewitness stated that he was a passenger in the front seat when he noticed something in the distance illuminated by the headlights on the edge of the road, at first he could not make out what it was but as they came within 50 meters away the eyewitness stated that he thought it was a dog but as they came within 20 meters the animal finished crossing the road and the eyewitness said that's when he noticed it was clearly a Thylacine without stripes standing out. As they drove passed he saw it disappear into the bush on the side of the road they turned back around to try and find the animal but it was nowhere to be seen.

If you or someone you know has had an encounter with a Thylacine or a strange unidentified animal in Australia  please email us.

New Encounter: Recent Big Cat encounter in Crooked River, Victoria

Here is a recent report from Crooked River in Victoria.

"Hey guys,
Just informing you of a recent sighting I had this week on a 4wd trip.
My partner and I were driving on billy goats bluff track in vic high country.
We had three other cars behind us and we were ascending up into the track.
We spotted a black panther on the left hand side of the track. We travelled no more than a kilometre. The panther was jet black and unmistakeable, it was somewhere between 5-6 foot long and at least 3-4 foot high with a long tail.
It was sitting along side the track and we got as close as twenty metres before it swiftly ran off into the scrub.
Unfortunately I did not have my camera,
but the two of us did see it. 
Hope this helps with your research.

Weather: 10-15c overcast day
Date: 26/6/2017
Time: 11.15am
Where: Billy goats bluff track, crooked river Vic High Country. (Near wonnangatta rd).
Coordinates: -37.40766, 147.08145"

New Case: report of suspicious kill in Central Queensland

Warning graphic photos below.

These photos were taken on a mine at a disclosed location in Queensland, here is what the person who took these photos stated.

"I sent these to a big cat sightings page & he said it was something of interest as it doesn't look like a dog kill cos dogs are messier & also that he knows people who would say its a marsupial lion kill.
I found it off the road a little bit where I'm working (7 on 7 off roster) spotted it cos I saw a wedge tail sitting in a tree above it.
I positioned it with its legs apart to get a pic of how the skin & fur wasn't chewed & mangled. 
Its legs were disjointed from the hip. 
I also found 3 other roo carcasses all the same size.
1 was completely intact & just starting to bloat.
1 was missing its tail & had rigor mortis but no bloat.
1 still had a little bit of warmth & its organs eaten from it's arse & pouch. 
All 3 were on the road I work.
I'm the first & last to use the road every day.
They all had the same marks on the neck.
During the day I have 2 other vehicles pass through, once each so that rules out vehicle strike.

He also stated.

"I over heard blokes at work giving  another bloke shit about "the sasquatch" apparently he saw "a sasquatch or something" running through the scrub.
This ARV when a work mate & I  were talking about the carcasses & I said I wouldnt be shocked if it was a big cat cos I watch so many docos & its how they eat he said he saw something he thought was a pig but then noticed it was walking on its back legs & looked just like a monkey."

Jen Lanci our 2nd in command and an Animal Behaviouralist who is used to working with felines states.

"Possible big cat but also possible true dingo. Yes a wild dog/hybrid usually hunt in family groups and therefore are messier due to fighting over carcass. But a xat and a dingo will kill this way and both will eat through the rear end remove intestines and eat as much as possible quickly before they lose their kill to something else. They both will also eat the liver/heart etc first as these are richer source of protein. But also meat ants will devour a carcass in a few days. 
The pics dont show the marks on the neck well and from that angel it could be anything from a bite to gun shot to arrow shot."

She also stated.

"See its also dingo breeding season and females will be needing bigger meals."

"If it was on mining property than there would definitely be scanvengers such as foxes. 
It appears the terrain is somewhat mountainous and to the east is Junee state forest."

Laurie Preo the co-Leader of A.C.R.O. Queensland stated.

"Looks very interesting the big cat sightings are getting more frequent, specially just north of me around Gympie, with reports of cattle and horse attacks,"

He also stated.

"It's interesting case this, from what he is saying, could be a yowie, specially if there was a sighting before by his mate, whatever did this, it's agressive in its kill..."

"if u watch lions in the wild, or big cats, they grab there prey around the neck before eating them, that's what I'm thinking, not excluding a dingo though.."
