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.

UK SIGHTINGS: Is a big 'puma-like' cat on the loose in Waltham?
HAVE you seen the Brigsley Beast?
A mysterious cat was seen walking from Mill Close to Waltham Windmill one morning this week.
It was spotted by a man on Monday morning, who described the animal – which he thinks is a puma – as big and black.
“I think it was a puma. It was prowling around in the area for about 30 seconds. It didn’t notice me but it was pretty big to be a domestic cat.”
