European Wildcat - Anyone else Seen One?
by smilespwp • Thu 31 May 2012 12:14

A couple of years ago a neighbour of mine said he had seen something looking like a raccoon walking along the wall opposite our houses. We didn't get too far in our investigations and the subject was dropped. Early last week, driving from St. Moreil to Bourganeuf (approaching St. Junien Le Bregere), I spotted what I have since identified, I believe, as a European Wildcat. A fairly large cat in appearance, with a thick distinctly barred tail and barred body. Fur colouring was medium grey with the barring a darker grey, almost black, shade.

Anyone else seen anything similar. Maybe this was what my neighbour saw.

Definately not a domestic cat.

Best regards
