UK SIGHTINGS: Mystery of cat sightings deepens

The mystery of big cats on the Mendips deepens as photographs have come to light which show an enormous cat taken at the time of a series of mysterious livestock killings last year. Andrew Highfield, of West Pennard, photographed this big cat last year, but after failing to identify it thought no more of the matter.

However, after seeing reports in the local paper of sightings of a "wild cat", Mr. Highfield decided to share his picture. Andrew said: "I showed the picture to a vet and he said it might be a Russian Blue or a Maine Coon. If you look at the picture, you can compare the cat to my cat – it's much bigger. And this picture was taken from 35 metres away or so!" Mr Highfield had seen the cat a number of times before and after the photograph was taken, often darting between houses at night or wondering into gardens during the day. This wild behaviour led him to believe it was not domesticated.
