Mr Raik-Allen said he was startled by the sighting 100 metres away in clear conditions on Erskine Falls Road at 5.30am.

``When I saw it I thought what the hell is a panther doing in Australia,'' Mr Raik-Allen said.

He estimated the cat, with long looping tail, was about 1.5 metres long and half a metre high.
