Stunned Marlborough woman Juliearna Kavanagh from Picton has revealed how the huge animal leapt across the road, just a few feet in front of her car just before Ward. The well-known business owner is warning people in the area to be careful in case the massive creature attacks. A pregnant puma was documented as having escaped from a circus in Lyttleton harbor and the possibility of using cougars was discussed as a way of controlling the thriving deer population in the Canterbury foothills.
It was so quick; it was either chasing something or had heard our car. We have previously received calls over the years about similar sightings. MPI has investigated many photographs, footprints and hair, scat and faeces samples, and in each of those previous cases, we have concluded the sighting to be that of a large feral cat.

Once built, the retirement village will include independent living homes, including two and three-bedroom villas, serviced apartments, rest home and hospital level care, and a memory care centre for people living with dementia.
The new village will also include a number of secure, high quality one bedroom apartments for dementia patients. Alzheimers Marlborough manager Anne Tolley welcomed the news of the specialist dementia care unit. Development plans extend beyond the village itself to help improve access for its residents, Julian says. With its close proximity to the Westwood Business Park, Summerset would also be talking to its neighbours about the possibility of creating a direct route to the shopping complex from the village, Julian says.
The property is zoned as Urban Residential two — greenfields, which allows for residential development. Once the Overseas Investment Office approves the purchase of the property, Summerset will need to obtain resource and building consent from the council before development can begin. It has 25 villages completed or in development across the country, housing residents and staff.
