Big Cats in the Bush?

A friend thinks that reports of ‘black pumas’ etc may well be ‘thylaceo leo,’ the marsupial lion (there being no large black cats anywhere in the world only spotted ones) but this is a VERY long bow, though it would be nice. In 50+ years in the bush I have never even seen a large cat spoor (or fewmet) though I have seen several striped foxes and two striped dingos (yes, black and gold) and curiously two giant echidnas (such as they have in New Guinea – here in Southern Victoria) and one very strange looking dog.
