Big cat spotted in England

A large panther-like creature has been sighted in England by locals walking their dogs. 'Alien big cats' have been sighted for many years in the British Isles and it is believed a viable population continues to live in the wild.
A big cat may be on the prowl in Worcestershire after two men claimed to have spotted a panther-like creature while walking their dogs. The men went to investigate but the cat got up, jumped into the undergrowth and disappeared. The pair spotted the creature as they walked their two whippets and terrier close to the near Bromyard Road, outside Worcester. “It was definitely a cat but not a domestic one, it was huge, it was bigger than our dogs, perhaps the size of an alsatian”, said one of the men."

"Alien big cats" in this context usually means not where you'd expect to find them, not necessarily extraterrestrial. It also makes a handy acronym, ABC. There's loads round our way. From our local community maghazine recently: "If you wake before dawn and walk up the Old Roman Road, you may well see this panther-like cat crossing your path, and head across the fields behind Elwell St - black and sleek, its long tail straight out behind, picking its silent way on wide, black pads. In the early morning it is possibly returning after a night's hunting, the occasional chicken suffering deep claw ... [More]
