Abstract:

Big cat scares have for generations haunted Victorians; stories of stock killed, claims of paw-prints left behind, rumours of 'beast' attacks only breeding the 'myth'. Often there was a large local response, with massive bushland hunts that focused on the notion of escaped lions, tigers or other big cats.
