The prints above were discovered by Nora Robertson (81) during a morning walk near her home in the Andrew Wood Court section of Edinburgh, Scotland. Robertson claims:
It was still dark so I had my torch with me, and the light reflected off one of these large prints. I followed the track all the way to my neighbour’s garden, which showed it had jumped up over a wall. I’ve never seen anything like this.
Some suggest these might simply be fox tracks. There are a lot of foxes in the area. And snow can increase the size of a track, suggesting it was made by a larger animal. But many in the area firmly believe this is more evidence of the mysterious big cats that have been sighted across the British Isle with increasing frequency in the last few years.
