Beast on Beagh? Part 1
I have to admit to being intrigued, by Wicklore's recent posting of tracks in the snow on Slieve Beagh. Not with standing the effect of melting snow on
the appearance and size of the tracks, they will perhaps, cause some MV's to look over their shoulder more often, whilst on the more remote sections of our hills.
Even if they turn out to be more dog than big cat.

My interest in such maters sprang - no pun intended - from a hiking trip myself and several friends under took in California's high sierra several years ago.
We had been delayed that day by a huge forest fire, and accordingly it was quite late when we set up camp by a small lake. A friend & I were filling our water containers
from the lake, when we took the first containers back to our tents and returned for the water bottles we had left behind, only to find fresh puma tracks all around where we had been
filling our bottles. To put this in perspective, it was only around trip of maybe a minute from the lake to our tents and back to the lake again and we had a clear view of the surrounding area
where we were camped. The group were very unsettled by this, mainly because of the open nature of the ground around us and despite this no one seen or heard them, it also raised the question were we still being watch by the puma(s) ? During that trip we had several black bear encounters, mostly around our campsites in the night, with one night in particular standing out, when the bears trashed another hikers tent and gear, no more 100 metres from us. We had also been charged at by a bear at the start of our trip as well. Yet despite these bear incidents, it was the puma, which no one saw, which unsettled the group the most. The point of this is of course, if there are big cats roaming around northern ireland - and i believe there are - , you are going to be very lucky see any of them!
