NEWSLINK: As reports of big cats are registered, could Lynx return to the wilds of East Devon?

Last month the Western Morning News ran a story of big cat seen near Plymouth while last year the Plymouth Herald reported that: “police have received 20 reports of ‘big cats’ being spotted across Devon, Cornwall and Plymouth over the last three years.”

If these reports seem incredible then think again. Beavers have returned to East Devon after an absence of centuries and there is a move to restore the lynx population. The big cat that is found across Europe was common in England until Saxon times.
