Mysterious beast prowls Plymouth suburbs

An animal that resembles a large predatory cat has been seen stalking a quiet neighborhood in England.
The idea that there could be a population of large cats roaming the British countryside is certainly nothing new. The phenomenon, which has spawned numerous legends over the years, has been investigated several times but to date no conclusive explanation has ever been found.

Some of the sightings are believed to have been the result of big cat owners releasing their animals in to the wild after the introduction of the Dangerous Wild Animals Act in 1976, but with reports of large cats continuing well in to the 21st century it seems unlikely that this could explain all of them.

This latest sighting, which was reported by 59-year-old office worker Carole Desforges, appears to be of another exotic species of cat such as a puma, lynx or leopard.

"I was in the living room and saw something blurry outside through the living room door," said Desforges. "I grabbed my phone and took a picture."

"I guess it remains a mystery. I enjoy the speculation about it all. "

Her sighting is one of 200 reported in the Devon and Cornwall region over the last 13 years.

Not much to give Scale here. I've seen these before where it was just a house cat. If the lady was zoomed in quite a bit, then the size of the animal compared to the fence would appear weird.

Try using that small bit of vegetation near its head as scale. It's many small weeds grouped up like a bush. It appears to be about a foot tall in its highest point and about two feet long.

It could be a paranormal puma which can vanish into thin air with the help of its alien masters. Much like how bigfoot (which has an association with UFOs) easily evades detection and capture. You should use some sort of smilie or a /sarcasm or /joking label just in case someone comes in here and thinks you're serious.

I don't think we can say how big a bunch of weeds are unless the lady goes out and puts a ruler next to those weeds. Also this appears to me that she may have taken this picture on maximum zoom, so that the perspective between the cat, fence and stuff in the foreground is messed up. (Flattened) Making the cat appear larger then perspective would normally lead someone to believe. assuming the perspective is ... [More]

Huh. Well, at least they got a photo. Definitely a big predatory cat(like they said) I don't know enough about big cat's to venture a guess. But yeah, the authorities hopefully can capture/kill this wild animal before some child or whatever get's hurt real bad. It's not normal for bobcats or cougars to attack people. I would be more worried about small dogs, cats, and livestock. Animal that has only been filmed once probably already avoids humans.
