For decades, people all across the United Kingdom - from the cold northern realms of Scotland to the southern-most borders of England – have reported sightings of large cats, very often the size of mountain-lions and equally often completely black in color.

Their many and varied colorful and memorable names include the Beast of Bodmin, the Essex Lion, the Surrey Puma, and the Beast of Exmoor.

Needless to say, no-one should be seeing any such creatures – anywhere at all – in the wilds of the UK. And yet people do see them, on no less than dozens and dozens of occasions each and every year.

Curious that it isn't stated on the Exmoor Zoo site, but Trevor Beer  has always maintained that big cats were known to have been released across Exmoor in 1976, I recall him mentioning two panthers that were owned by an Ilfracombe butcher as examples.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?
