African Golden Cat ~ Rare Footage via Panthera!

CNN spots lovely African Golden Cat caught on hidden camera!
"Scientists tracking one of Africa’s most elusive and poorly understood animals say they’ve recorded a rare -- and possibly the only publicly released -- video of the species in the wild. The video, recorded by a motion-activated camera left in a Gabon forest, shows an African golden cat: a shy, medium-sized feline that ducks human contact and lives in hard-to-access parts of central African forests. “As far as we know, it’s never before been filmed (in the wild) for... the public domain,” said Luke Hunter, president of Panthera, the conservation group providing most of the funding for the team that captured the video this year."
