A dog walker claims she came face to face with a lion while out with her two Yorkshire Terriers yesterday.
The woman, who didn’t want to be named through fear of being mocked, said she was exercising her dogs near to Thor Drive in Goldington, Bedford, when the socalled beast crossed her path before apparently making its way to a nearby pig farm.
The animal was described as being around four foot tall and orange and brown in colour. The woman, who also lives in Goldington described the incident.
Four foot tall that's a big lion. It's a wonder he didn't have her for lunch and the dogs for desert.
to be fair, just because its a predator doesn't mean it would automatically attack - i've been within ten feet of bears before and never had a problem. that being said, if a lion was there it should be trackable if they got an experienced tracker in there ASAP
Hi everyone, I used to live down that way....well in Cambridgeshire and we had a resident big cat sightings police officer, think you can find his notes on them on line :-S
Anyway, we had several scares in our little town, many sightings, dogs and other pets taken by either a black cat or possibly a lynx (reports of both being seen in area), we also had trackers brought in from America to look at footprints found in an alley near our home.
We also heard growling not a dog, but something really guttural, low pitched and frightening, my dog nearly took out my Husband getting into the house( extremely large dog too!)
We didn't fear for our lives, just our pets as it seemed to snatch them out of peoples gardens...
So yes I do believe there are big cats out there!!!
