Big cat in Mournes
« on: May 19, 2011 »

Big cat in Mourne Mountains (maybe)
Hi,

A bit of x-files type stuff here Big cat sightings.

I was going through some old photos and found this pic which was taken in the mourne mountains.

My curiosity was peaked by a black spot in the background and when I used Photoshop to zoom in I saw what looked like a head and two round ears!! The beast of the Mournes lives!!!!!!

Freaky.

The pics are here (cant post them here for some reason.....

Hopefully that "big cat" doesn't pop out of the bushes while everyone is on the survival weekend. You lot all standing there with a wee knife and nothing else.  :D

Not the mournes,although I seen some sort of creature a few years ago while I was fishing,it was about 5am dark October morning & I was fishing alone on the outskirts of downpatrick next to Hollymount wood,soon as I arrived at my usual spot my dog started growling and barking ,I looked around and seen nothing, but he kept barking so I tied him up to a tree about 20 feet from were I was fishing,I was just about to smack him when I noticed he was looking upwards into the trees,at first I thought it was a black bag caught up in the tree,"then it moved" I quickly untied my dog and walked toward this moving shape,( silly I know" ) I shined my torch at it,it was just a bit bigger that a spaniel,with black bushy tail,I picked up my fishing rod and starting banging it on the ground,it starting hissing  & coming down the tree and I can remember thinking this is totally not happening,but just as it reached near the bottom of the tree it leapt into some bushes,I quickly packed up my gear and made for the house,scary shit,I've let the loco gamekeeper see the photo I took which was a clear shot about 12 feet away,he,s never seen anything like it,the ulster museum have also seen the photos,they think it's some sort of cross breed exotic animal,anyway I've not really told anyone before
