UK SIGHTINGS: The Beast of Tamworth: New picture of 'big cat' in countryside
By Tamworth Herald | Posted: October 16, 2014
IS THIS the most compelling evidence yet of a big cat stalking the countryside around Tamworth?
This striking photo, taken in Grendon by local man Alan Jones, is the latest evidence to come to light after years of sightings.
Since 2001, The Herald has received almost 70 calls from residents who say they have seen a black panther-like animal – and dozens of other sightings are said to have gone unrecorded.
Farmers, teachers, nurses, accountants and police officers are among those who have spotted the powerful beast – said to be around five feet in length – in villages in and around Tamworth.
