Indeed, it is only these smaller animals that have cause for feread morear: Our predator is about the size of a house cat
A large black ‘cat-like’ animal has been spotted near Daventry. The animal was seen by a motorist driving into Braunston from the A361 at around 8.30pm on Thursday, May 15.
The animal was seen at the side of the road, shortly after the motorist turned off the A361 onto the Braunston lane.
Described as around 2.5 metres from shoulder to tail, and standing around one metre tall, the animal had a feline type body shape, and had black fur. The animal’s head was not seen, and it walked away into the ditch before a photo could be taken.

KRISHNAGIRI: A leopard entered a house in Kanalatti village near Krishnagiri on Saturday morning, sparking off panic among the residents. The big cat was tranquillised within a few hours after those living in the house locked the house from outside and alerted police and forest officials.
The leopard was first spotted by Sridhar, who woke up from sleep around 6 am after hearing some noise. An alert Sridhar woke his brother and sister up and the three got out of the house silently and locked it from outside.
Later, police and the forest officials arrived and tried to bring the leopard out of the house by beating drums and bursting crackers, but it stayed put. Then, it was captured using a tranquilliser.
“My stepmother Ammaiyamma was washing vessels outside the house. My brother Gopal, 10, sister Kaviya, 12, and I were asleep in our room. At that time, I heard the sound of someone entering the room and woke up. I was shocked to see a leopard just a few feet away. I remained silent, woke my brother and sister up and we three came out of the house and locked it,” Sridhar, son of house owner Laxmaiya, told Express.
After sometime, the leopard entered kitchen and stayed there till it was tranquillised, he added.
Venkatesh, owning a browsing centre in the locality, said his father spotted the animal and followed it till the house. “This is the first time a leopard has entered our village. But we’ve heard about this leopard being in the nearby forest for the last two years,” Venkatesh said.
FEATURELINK: Jaguar: the largest of the big cats in the Americas and a God of the Underworld for the Maya
The jaguar, a muscular and compact species, weighs anywhere between 79 and 350 pounds (36 and 160 kilograms); with a length between 3.9 and 6.4 feet (1.2 and 1.95 meters), it is the undisputed largest of the big cats in the Americas.
This makes the jaguar the third largest cat in the world (behind the lion and the tiger), and the largest cat in the western hemisphere.
Believed to have originally evolved in Asia before crossing over into North America via the Bering land-bridge, the stealthy cat of the Americas has a current range that includes Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica (particularly on the Osa Peninsula), Ecuador, French Guiana, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, the Southern United States and Venezuela.
