I'm obviously making this up.
And since I'm making it up, I'll add another little fantastical twist: the attempt to capture the animal alive is being funded by Puma, the sporting goods company.
Also, the animal is known as Winnie the Poohma.
Also, it may actually be a panther.
Video here. It turns out I'm not making it up after all. FAQ's here (in Dutch) include:
- "What does Winnie eat?"
- "Why haven't you called Steve Erwin?"
- "If you can take pictures of Winnie, why haven't you captured him/her?"
