Once found across Britain, this magnificent predator is now rarer than the tiger - with perhaps only 40 left at large

Very interesting and informative article.
It would be a shame if this wildcat disappeared from Scotland, but there seem to be aleady so many sub-wild (domestic feral) cats through cross-breeding that the Highland wildcat is probably doomed as a purebred species.

I guess their genes will not be extinct, but spread out in the domestic cat population. I wonder whether this would make some domesticated cats more ferocious?
