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: School on alert after cougar sighting
An early morning cougar sighting in Nanaimo has a nearby elementary school on edge, according to Mounties.
The big cat was spotted in the backyard of a home on King Richard Drive, close to Departure Bay Elementary School, before 7 a.m. Wednesday.
Neighbour Don Varey said he could hear dogs barking from the yard next door, and when his daughter let their own dogs out she spotted the cougar behind a fence.
