Panther.
 
The Spotted Panther in Dryden’s Hind and Panther means the Church of England full of the spots of error; whereas the Church of Rome is faultless as the milk-white hind   1

And fairest creature of the spotted kind,
Ah, could her inborn stains be washed away,
She were too good to be a beast of prey.”
