Evidence suggests that the 'Beast of Bodmin' is not only surviving but thriving in the wilds of Britain.
A 19-year-old student this week caught on camera the strongest indication yet that alien big cats, such as pumas and panthers, are continuing to survive in the British countryside.
Henry Warren had been taking pictures in a field near his home in Cornwall when he encountered a large cat that leapt out in front of him. The incident occurred just 45 miles from Bodmin Moor where sightings of an infamous cat-like creature have been reported for years.
"I was taking pictures of our new house when I saw something run across the field and in front of my lens," he said. "It was absolutely massive and was hoping up and down like a large cat. There's no way it could have been fox, a dog or anything else like that."
The British Big Cat Society has confirmed that there has been a growing body of evidence to show that these creatures are very much alive and well in the British Isles.
"Photographs, pawprints and fur samples have long-shown that big cats live in parts of Britain," said a spokesman. "Recent figures provide real evidence that big cat sightings are on the increase which is very exciting."
