(ANSA) - Florence, September 25 - The hunt is on for a big
cat in the area of San Casciano Valdipesa south of Florence
after repeated sightings during the last six months, especially
over the last 10 days.
An expert has identified paw prints found in the area as
most likely being of a "large feline, a leopard or panther or
similar species, which is probably young in age".
Six cages have been positioned to trap the feline and
nighttime controls have been reinforced in the area where
faeces, claw marks on tree trunks and the remains of supposed
prey have been found.
There have been numerous big feline scares in Italy in
recent years although attempts to catch the animals in question
have often led to nothing.
Only recently it emerged that an animal sighted by hunters
in the Valdelsa area of Tuscany and thought to be a large feline
was actually just a very large black Maine Coon cat.
