The "Legend" of the Large Cat

BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- No sightings have been confirmed, but the talk continues to swirl about the "big cat" that may be to blame for the deaths of dogs in Bolivia.

Workers at the Brunswick County Animal Services office say they've received numerous phone calls about different sightings.

However, a lot of those phone calls have been about sightings from years past and in locations around the county away from Bolivia.

The "big cat" story has dominated the local discussion but is full of rumors and second-hand information.

Animal services say they're just trying to focus on "big cat" spottings near the Midway Road area.

"There hasn't been a sighting yet, but if there is one, I have a on-call animal officer. He will call me, and we'll begin to make an investigation," explained Richard Cooper of the Brunswick County Animal Services

Cooper tells WECT that they've checked the tracks left behind and are still trying to match the tracks with a specific animal.
