In October 1980, a female puma was captured at Cannich in Inverness-shire. A puma had been sighted in the area on various occasions, for up to two years prior to the capture. Local farmer, Mr. Noble, constructed a metal cage trap and placed it in a part of his land where the puma was known to frequent. Once captured, she was taken to Kincraig Wildlife Park near Kingussie and lived for another five years. Christened 'Felicity', she was stuffed after her death and can now be seen at Inverness Museum.

In this audio extract, recorded at the time of Felicity's capture, you can hear her persistent low, rhythmic growling while she was in the cage
