[quote:Anonymous Coward 1136949:MV83NjMxMzZfMjA5NDUzNzhfMzg4OUM3MjA=] Across the pond: Pet owner spots 'big cat' roaming during daylight near home This latest sighting brings the total to almost 50 in the past eight years. Described by most people as a black sleek creature, it is believed to most likely be a melanistic leopard, commonly referred to as a black panther. The most recent sighting was on Friday, November 19, on land off New Street, Measham. Twenty-six-year-old Alex Lloyd was alerted by the barking of his rottweiler and his next-door neighbour's dog. He told the Herald: "At around 2pm suddenly both dogs started barking. They don't usually bark at each other so I went to see what was happening. "Part of the national forest runs alongside our garden and I realised they were barking at something they had seen. I thought it was someone out walking, but then suddenly a big cat ran across, about 10 metres away. "It just bounded along this pathway in the grass. It was about the same size as my rottweiler but it was not a dog, you could tell by the way it ran. http://www.thisistamworth.co.uk/news/Pet-owner-spots-big-cat-roaming-daylight-near-home/article-2934466-detail/article.html [/quote]
