Residents of the Podhale town of Czorsztyn are reportedly avoiding the forest and even refusing to let their cattle graze nearby… after a mushroom picker reported seeing a big cat on the prowl.
The picker described the beast – said to have been either a puma or a panther, as ‘big as a sheepdog and black as coal’. Czorsztyn authorities took the report so seriously that they posted a warning on the town’s official website.
