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.

VIDEO: Snow leopard enjoys winter weather at Mill Mountain
While winter weather may be unbearable for some, cold temperatures have the big cats at Mill Mountain Zoo more active than ever.
Frigid temperatures have many of the animals laying low, snuggled up in their dens.
But it's actually the best time of year to see Nina the mountain lion or Bali the snow leopard.
Mill Mountain Zoo co-director Robin Lentz escorted 10 News up close to the snow leopard's den to see Bali in action. Although Lentz said big cats typically sleep around 20 hours a day, the snow has Bali particularly active.
