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.

NEWSLINK: Big cat spotted in Warboys
Driving past Swannells Haulage on the A141 from Huntingdon on Saturday (June 13), 72-year-old Peter Ireland says he is positive he saw a large black puma.
He told The Hunts Post: “I know a puma when I see one. I have been game hunting in Australia and Estonia so I know what a big cat looks like.
“It had grey flecks in its coat and was bigger than a Labrador. It just trotted calmly in front of my car. I was just 20 yards away. If it had been any closer, I would have hit it.
“I can’t believe I’m the only person to have seen this cat. Other people, farmers and the like, must have seen it before. I don’t expect anyone who hasn’t seen it will believe me, but I can tell you it was a puma I saw.”
