The hunt for British Big Cats attracts far more newspaper column-inches than any other cryptozoological subject. There are so many of them now that we feel that they should be archived by us in some way, so we should have a go at publishing a regular round-up of the stories as they come in.

US SIGHTINGS: Mountain Lion Traps Set Up in Bay Area Foothills
A group that researches big cats in the Bay Area is setting up bait stations around the region’s foothills in an effort to catch mountain lions roaming near neighborhoods.
Wednesday, the group spent the day setting up capture stations in the foothills of San Jose and in the East Bay.
Tim Weber says he's all for the traps. On Wednesday, the San Mateo man showed NBC Bay Area the wooded area behind his home on Fernwood Street, where he says he encountered a 100-pound mountain lion on Tuesday and again Wednesday morning.
