A man claims to have taken pictures of a & # 39; big cat & # 39; who eats a wallabie.

The images were reportedly taken by a man named Daniel in East Gippsland, Victoria, on a five-hectare hobby farm.
A man has shared images of a & # 39; big cat & # 39; who according to him is eating wallaby & # 39; s at his hobby farm in East Gippsland, Victoria
When Daniel first encountered the animal, he quickly started taking pictures, then he screamed and the & # 39; big cat & # 39; ran away.
When he came closer to where the beast had been, he was shocked when he found the remains of a mature wallabie.
& # 39; Daniel has seen this cat three times a month and has finally been able to take some pictures & # 39; s, the Facebook page signed the images.
& # 39; He said the cat appears to be in poor health and has a lot of hair loss. He described it as scabies, similar to what you see on a wombat.
& # 39; He also added that he thinks this is why it is in broad daylight and that it may have something to do with the disappearance of wallaby & # 39; s. & # 39;
Daniel is said to have seen five or six wallabies walking and now he barely sees one in three days.
The images were shared last month with a hunting Facebook page and ended up on Reddit earlier this week and seemed to show a large black animal and the remains of a wallaby
Social media users were divided over what the images showed.
One person wrote: & # 39; I was ready to say that you had stopped drinking, but those extra photos are pretty convincing.
& # 39; My rational brain says that wild cats can get quite big, but they are also rarely pure black like that.
Daniel said he saw five or six wallaby's on a walk and now he barely sees one in three days
& # 39; I really think you should contact a suitable government department; maybe national parks. & # 39;
Others did not believe the photographer at all.
Australia has had several reports over the years of sightings of big cats in states such as Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
One of the best known sightings is the Lithgow Panther, which has reportedly been seen more than 550 times since 1988 in the Blue Mountains, Lithgow, and Hawkesbury.
