“He has brought in four buffalo bulls, nineteen cows and eleven calves. He reports that his party took near a hundred calves, but that he could not save them. He also took an animal of the lion or panther species. It is a stranger to Buffon or Goldsmith, and to us all. It is almost of a bright scarlet colour, larger than a panther, and the mosr ferocious animal I suppose that ever fell into the hands of the human species. It was caught in a wolf trap.”
