At first glance, I thought it was a subaru  parked up, with a posse of bull cross yahoos about to get out and slip their dogs on it, but on closer inspection, couldn't see any occupants 🙂

Clearly just a large domestic cat. That car is further away that you think, just an optical illusion.

I no Peugeot probably have there own stunt lion but for the rest of us things ain’t that simple, just checked a camera and within a few days of setting it a branch full of leaves has sprung up and given me 600 plus short videos to go through without a single animal, easy to see why so many just end up chucked in the drawer with flat battery,s

Greyman whats your best bit of evidence you've. I believe you must have good stuff or have seen good stuff to be as confident as you are.

I get to see a few more pics each year mate sadly not the 100  Percenter im after but still enough, a few footprints and the odd carcass (of prey), I,m still trying to work out the movements of certain animals I,m aware of, they seem to move around a large area over a period of about a year, so if you miss them in an area you have probably got to wait another year for it to return, one spot I go to always throws up a good carcass or some footprints in the last two weeks of november first two in December and then nothing for a year, it’s a long slow process but the answer is to have the cameras in an area before the animal arrives if that makes sense, one lad I no has caught what I assume is the same cat three times on the same camera at the same time of year in the same spot, so it’s about working out the cycle without the advantages of being able to trap or track them tranquillise them and fit a collar, luckily a lot of the work done by the mountain lion groups in the states has shown habits that seem to translate over here, would also say that when I go to the uni and talk with professors and other professional people who are 100 percent onboard  then how can I an uneducated man doubt them, but my strongest motivation is simply that I saw one stalking along a hedge line in Dorset 4 years ago and I saw my dogs reaction to it, like others I had heard about it for years and had lots of mates in the 80s90s that saw them and even a few that slipped dogs on them but it was September 2015 that I saw one myself, and as my digging coursing days were well behind me. Thought why not and the cameras teach me far more about all wildlife than I ever  imagined possible so I,m winning even when I,m failing mate ✌️✌️

I saw this today on a London housing estate 🤣 bold as brass, sitting there, didn't even move when I took the pic, the holy grail, proof that big cats (of a sort) do indeed exist in the UK.

I know an American woman in west-London with one,its name is spanky 🤣 its huge,if it wandered the streets would be very easy to mistake it for something more exotic and non-indigenous.
