Escaped Tiger

The Inverness Journal, October 9 1807

On Tuesday, 29th ult., an animal resembling a tiger cat found its way into a house in Invermoriston, which being observed by a woman of the house, who instantly gave the alarm, he sprang towards her with the greatest ferocity, at least sixteen feet, but was prevented from doing her injury by three men who pursued and killed him. A leather collar, with an iron chain about eight inches long, was found round his neck. It is supposed to be the same animal which recently made his escape from Brahan, and is said to have done considerable mischief.
