When I worked in a rural part of the county, we used to get reports of big cats quite frequently. A puma was reputed to wander the area over one particular summer. Investigations used to revolve around a phone call to the nearest zoo or animal sanctuary to see if any had escaped, followed by a quick drive round the nearest village. There were lots of reports but never a puma was found.

Essex Police seem to have called off their search for a lion.

    I am absolutely convinced that I saw a puma about 10 years ago in a very rural part of our fair home counties. But I can’t have done can I?

    These cats are small. The ones out there are far away.

    I’m still positive I saw a Panther in the Chilterns on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border back in the 90s. My wife still doesn’t believe me to this day !!!

    Just imagine being picked in an identity parade by someone who can’t tell a pussy from a lion.
