Snarls from the Tea-tree: Big Cat Folklore

David Waldron, Simon Townsend

Big cat scares have for generations haunted Victorians; stories of stock killed, claims of paw-prints left behind, rumours of ‘beast’ attacks only breeding the ‘myth’. Often there was a large local response, with massive bushland hunts that focused on the notion of escaped lions, tigers or other big cats. The ‘myth’ of the big cat has evolved over time, but relates closely to Australia’s engagement with its environment. Waldron and Townsend study this big cat folklore evolution across Victoria.
