Recently a trapper at Cape Nelson had been greatly annoyed by the loss of rabbits which were taken from the traps. The culprit was found in the capture of an enormous wild cat, which apparently had been trapped before and escaped minus part of its tail. It was found on measurement to be 5 feet in length. The skin was pure white and was the largest specimen ever seen in this district.
