    It could also be a black fox. The footage was far to shakey and small to tell properly

    I would love to see a wild big cat in real life, there was a sighting of one less than a mile away from where I live and I always look out for it when I drive down that road, I think there are so many hoaxes though.

    I seriously wonder if any of these people have actually SEEN a leopard (what this is meant to be) and know just how big they are.

    Thats quite obviously a bog standard cat.

    I echo what you have all said that is just a bog standard cat - if you look at the size of leopards in zoo's and on documentaries they are huge compared with that!
    Obviously its not brilliant footage and picture anyway but I think its pretty clear its just someones moggy!

    To me it looked like a cat or dog. If you look how it walks it moves like a dog, panthers etc. don't walk like that.

    I don`t realy beleive these stories, there have been some here in N.I. but if they are "big" cats why are they not seen more often?Of course there are irresponsible pet owners out there who just dump the animal when they lose interest in it.

    I feel very confident, personally, that the cat in the footage is a typical domestic kitty. Big black tom, probably.

    I agree with CreativeLC. Black leopards (/panthers) and dogs have a much different stride.
