Maynard's Spooky Action...
Black panther sightings are reported from time to time in eastern Australia, notable in the Blue Moutains west of Sydney. Today Maynard talks to Lee Harvey who claims he saw one in the Hunter Valley, north-west of Sydney.
Maynard then chats to Peter Bowditch from Ratbags.com for a more skeptical take on big cats in Australia.
The Think Tank In the tank this week are Dr Rachael Dunlop, Bastard Sheep and Richard Saunders.
