I know one RIBnetter who has shot a Jaguarundi that was on the loose in the British Isles for many weeks, if not months. It's all a bit hush hush but I'm quite happy that it happened.

A second story, a friend of mine in Northern Ireland was walking through brush near his home (in a VERY isolated tree filled valley). As he approached a bush along his route, a deep growl emanated from it. He stopped, the growling increased. He engaged full astern and the bush calmed down. No sighting.
These Jaguarundi do seem more feasible willk than leopards or Jaguars due to the fact that there have only been sightings, and no actual serious or fatal attacks.
