Big Cat Sighting

Just so you know if and when you do find anything but this is what a carcass scavenged by British scavengers will look like, very dried out as it takes several days, eyes plucked out by birds, bones mostly left in situ until they have deteriorated enough  to be taken away and eaten, unlike the one I showed that has been totally hollowed out of its vital organs first, is still full of pools of fresh blood and was totally consumed in one sitting plus rear legs removed as they usually are, here is another one to help you, this one was shot and consumed in 4 hours the cut round the neck is man made, that’s two deer consumed by one large predator and one deer consumed by many small scavenger, the picture on the right is a key point as it’s a rumen bag that is toxic to cats who only consume meat and bone  but is very desirable to omnivorous animals like fox and badger, hope that helps as we would hate for you to look like you don’t no what your on about and throw out any old shite👍

Whilst your explanation makes perfect sense mate ,I call recall a whole sheep eaten by foxes and badgers in two nights .That was of course before any mention of big cats but I remember the footprints clearly .As much as I would love to see your vision too ,reality and common sense steers me away from any agreement .If I ever come across anything here ,I will without hesitation get hold of your number via a mutual friend .You say my area has many reports ,I’m out at least 3 nights a week so here’s hoping 🤞

On my bucket list mate .

I would purchase a body no questions and no names needed, it’s one of the three C,s corpse, clear picture or captured animal, also need it tested properly in a lab to verify it’s authentisity 👍

I would put it to the group mate to see what it was worth I personally have no clue and though I happily share my stuff with them my main aim is to get the picture, a corpse found in Devon years ago had insect eggs in the fur that were from foreign insects so obviously it was not native, have been told by one lad I know that he shot a lynx in Scotland a couple of years back but buried the body, called it in squeaking for Fox,s and a few others that have been burnt, think people are naturally worried about loosing there ticket if they come forward which is why I would do it anonymously 👍👍

We’ve otters here mate ,along the Avon .

I,ve seen quite a few on my travels even had a camera by a Holt for a while but no luck, your area has a lot of them I think the lower mill estate near south cerney were breeding and releasing them much to the delights of the local anglers, my boys been putting otter proof fencing up round the lake he fishes over the winter, surprisingly destructive on young water birds as well often a sign there around when all the ducklings and goslings start disappearing

It was a skull I think?Two kids did it as a prank with a cheetah skull,or maybe a leopard skull,but it deffo had foreign insect pupae cases in the nasal cavity.

Why you think it seems people are so reluctant to come forward with cctv, corpses or other evidence?

The main reason is they don’t want people stomping all over there land looking for it or trying to shoot it, got some quite good footage from a campsite last year, but who would want to sleep in a tent if you told them there was a leopard wandering round and trust is a big thing when your dealing with people, the house I mentioned earlier with the cctv footage actually asked the hunt to stop using there land, also I guess people may become the target of hatred if they put there hands up and said I shot this 🐆different folk different strokes, but most people’s reaction is if it ain’t causing a problem leave it alone, here is a little board that goes up in the tent at country shows which gives you an ideal 👍

1955 it was,leopard skull,the thing that gave it away was tropical cockroach egg-casings in the skull,some guy also claimed to have found a puma skull in 2006 in devon,which was examined by a DEFRA vet.
