April 2015 'big cat' sighting:

From the Sussex Express of 7/4/2015:

'A reader has reported seeing the ‘Fenland Big Cat’ around the Friday Bridge area last week.
John Johnson, of Victoria Road, Wisbech, says he spotted an animal crossing a field while walking his dog on Thursday at 5pm.'

'Mr Johnson said: “I was walking my dog on the old canal site in Elm when I saw an animal crossing the fields at high speed from Friday Bridge to the A1101.

“It was about as tall as a Labrador but twice as long and mainly black.

“It had a brown cat shaped head, so not a muntjac deer or fox. Did anybody else see it?”
There have been several sightings of a big cat creature across Fenland over the years.'

Two 'big cat' sightings in Sussex

Apologies for lack of updates; some 'big cat' sightings received are now posted on the Facebook page BIG CATS IN KENT. The first report comes from the outskirts of the Ashdown Forest from late July and concerns a motorist who whilst diving braked hard to avoid a large black cat that ran across the road in front of him. He described the animal as slightly smaller than an Alsatian dog and carrying a rabbit in its mouth. In mid August 2015 a large black cat was observed near Battle by a man walking his daughter at 8:00 am. The animal strolled out of the bushes some fifty yards away; causing the dog to turn rigid and stare at the cat which then stopped in its tracks, turned round and vanished into the bushes from whence it came.
