Chilling footage shows 'a big cat' walking across a small fence in a garden in Scotland - and experts have reportedly claimed it's actually a puma. Watch below:
An unnamed woman was understandably freaked out after spotting the animal having a wander outside her home in Larkhall at around 3.55am on Saturday morning.
Reported by The Sun, the woman said: "My husband phoned me when I was in the house and asked if I saw the thing on our doorstep last night.
"When I had a look, I thought it must've been a fox or something, but he went, 'Look at the size of it!'
"Then I thought it was absolutely massive."
She added: "The fence next to it is about four feet tall, so that gives an idea of how big it must've been to match the size of that."
After discovering the beast of Larkhall on her Ring cam, she went and notified authorities about what she saw.
She continued: "It happened on Saturday morning. I called the police, who told me to call the Scottish SPCA.
"They told me to call Big Cat Sighting and I emailed everything over to them.
"They messaged me and are sure it's an adult puma."
"It was strange because it was in a built up areas, but they told me there have been lot of sightings confirmed."
A spokesperson for the British Big Cat Society told LADbible: "The footage is filmed on a fish-eye lens - the cat in the video is merely a neighbour's large domestic cat."
Hmmm. I guess it's up to you to decide who to believe.
This sighting isn't necessarily an isolated incident, in any case - a cat tracker has claimed that huge wild cats, including pumas and lynx, have been roaming around Britain.
Rhoda Watkins has spent more than two decades investigating and learning about big cats, even spending time with the San bushmen in Namibia, who are thought to be amongst the best trackers in the world.
The 42-year-old, who lives in Cornwall, said she believes that big cats including pumas and leopards are in the wild in the UK, and even reckons there's a 'healthy breeding population'.
Rhoda, who was born in South Africa, said: "I have studied the behaviour of animals, including prey species and big cats, and see things with a tracking mindset.
''There is just too much evidence out there that cannot be anything other than big cats.
"There is a lot of nonsense around sightings of domestic cats and dogs, but all the signs are there is a decent-sized population out there."
