I drove up the hill from my house with a 12 year old passenger and we saw the animal run very fast across the road. It was the size and shape of the tiger. My neighbour had made a sighting some years previous. We are on the edge of the temperate rain forest here.
The animal was about 2 meters, very slim and sleek coat. long tail held straight out. On seeing the car the animal ran at a very fast pace across our headlights and into the scrub, the sighting lasted 5 seconds, it was a clear night and the animal was about 10 metres away.
