The English Captain, John Strong, made the first recorded landing on the Falkland Islands in 1690, coming ashore near Bold Cove on West Falkland.
A Mr. Stimson, one of the officers onboard the "Welfare" wrote the first known description of the warrah - he thought it was a fox of some sort, albeit twice the size of an English one.
“We caught a young one alive, which we kept on board for some months.” The ship was later in battle against the French and the poor terrified warrah leapt overboard.
