UNKNOWN BIG CAT OF NAMIBIA?
In 1853 a book by Ray Galton appeared entitled Narrative of an Explorer in South Africa. When in South-West Africa (now Namibia) he described an unknown species of cat which in some respects resembled a puma. This animal was reported a number of times by other sources. The natives were acquainted with it and said it was not dangerous to humans. But what was it? Is it still to be found?
