1979 Armidale Sighting

"In July 1979 I was driving on the Guyra-Ebor road near Armidale. I think the district is named Wongwibinda. It was mid afternoon and light was good. My fiance and I were on our way to the property Dyamberin where we were to stay with the Wright family for a few days. A very large black cat (panther) around 5ft long excluding the tail loped across the road in front of our car. How close? I recall it was very close but I did not need to apply the brakes, so say 50-100m. The animal came from clear paddock on one side of the road to perhaps bushy undergrowth on the other side of the road."
