SIGHTING, UK: Woman believes 'huge black shape' is panther

Pulling back the curtains one morning, a Fovant resident caught sight of something rather unusual in the field behind her home.

Sylvia Blaydon says she spotted a “huge black shape” last Monday morning at about 7am, which she believes could have been a type of big cat.

“After looking through the binoculars the only thing that is very, very like it is a panther.” she said.

“I am 100 per cent sure it was a big cat. I’ve seen enough wild animals where I lived in Canada.”
