Elusive 'Black Cat of Tynedale' caught on camera

Is this a panther, a domestic cat, or something else ? Image Credit: Anonymous
Recently released footage allegedly shows a large, exotic cat that reportedly roams the wilds of Northumberland.
It's a phenomenon that has endured in the British Isles for decades - sightings of large cats such as panthers and lynxes (sometimes referred to as "alien big cats") that have somehow ended up surviving in the wilds of a country in which they do not belong.

Sightings of such creatures have produced a number of local legends in parts of England, such as the famous 'Beast of Bodmin Moor' which gained notoriety after a spate of incidents in 1978.

Now another similar legend - 'The Black Cat of Tynedale' - has reportedly been captured on camera in the Allen Valleys - a remote region of Northumberland - by a worker who has chosen to remain anonymous.

The footage, which can be viewed below, shows what appears to be a large black cat wandering through a field, however determining it's exact size is somewhat difficult.
According to the witness, the cat was around 40 meters away at the time of recording.

The sighting follows on from a report in 2008 from a resident who spotted a large black cat "stalking deer" in the Guessburn Estate area.

A similar creature was also spotted by two other witnesses in that same year.

So could this video be evidence of a panther or other exotic beast roaming Northumberland or is it nothing more than a domestic cat out for a stroll in a field ?

You decide.

If compared to the fence posts, which could easily be 4 ft high, the animal looks at least half their height and probably a bit more. So probably not a domestic cat.

Looks like a short-legged domestic barn cat to me. A large cat, even a wild cat would have longer legs and would have towered over that short-cropped grass.

It walks behind the final fence post just before the end of the video. ''IF'' the posts are 3' 6" to 4' high this would make the creature around or just under 3' tall. As for anyones general ability to take a quality video of something, whether in a rush or not on a phone, I think that the jury is still out. I also don't think that I would hang around too long if I saw what I thought to be a relatively big cat only about 40 yards from me. My nephew and 2 of his friends had a sighting of a large black cat 11 years ago in a village near where we live in the Midlands of the UK. They were able ... [More]

There's no sense of scale in the video. I mean, it looks like a normal housecat, and probably is.

Another pic that proves nothing past some moving object was videoed, Many years ago i saw a documentry seems it was UFOs but they showed a group of elderly folks who went out hunting paranormal type stuff for fun, One lady said and i have to paraphase that if she came upon a chupacabra she would try to go touch it feel it see what iy was made of, She sounded sincere and i like that moxy and in that why do so many people post some basically worthless blurry blob pic and claim its smoking gun proof of their belief, They never go after the beast or even try to zoom in they take a quick snap or ...
