more Big cats
Fresh sightings of a mysterious big black cat in north Norfolk have made the news.
Andy Blake, says he spotted the creature in the field at the front of the Muckleburgh Collection museum last June.
He said: “We were driving past about 5.30pm on a summer's evening and about 100 rabbits in the field with a tank in it suddenly scattered. I slowed down and we saw this dark grey animal, about 12 feet long, run across the field and jump clean over two 4ft-high fences.
“The only time I've seen anything like it was when I was younger and saw the black panther in the Jungle Book film,” said Mr Blake, of Saddleworth Moor, near Manchester. “I did not know about these big-cat sightings in the past, but we have now spending more time here and saw the headlines.”
There have also been reported sightings of big black cats near Aylsham and Aylmerton in recent weeks. Is a large cat on the prowl in the area? The dark grey colour is a confusing issue. Not sure there are dark grey large cats in the world.Black would have indiacted a puma/ panther type beast.The Big Cat Conference is taking place in Middlesbrough on 20th-22cnd March, wonder if this will be mentioned?
