Cotswolds big cat speculation mounts as second dead deer found
Roe deer carcass found a few miles east of animal discovered earlier on National Trust land, which is undergoing DNA tests
By Steven Morris guardian.co.ukThe remains of another deer have been found in an area of the Cotswolds where big cats may be on the prowl. Later this week the National Trust is expected to reveal the results of DNA tests on a deer carcass found at its Woodchester Park estate near Stroud.But it has emerged that a second roe deer's body has been found a few miles further east of Woodchester that experts believe could also be the victim of a big cat.Big cat experts in Gloucestershire said on Monday they were not surprised at the second account. Frank Tunbridge, who has studied sightings and examined carcasses of many supposed big cat catches, said he would expect such reports, especially during the winter months when cats — if they do exist — are forced out into more exposed areas. "This is the sort of report we get almost every week but it's attracting attention because of the Woodchester find," he said.
