Big Cat in Cornwall?
4:15pm 8th March 2012
Paws for thought in Cornwall.
Experts think a skeleton found in ponds near St Austell could be a big cat, like a cougar.
The skull, teeth and spine were discovered at Par.
A vet says more tests are needed.
Danny Bamping from British Big Cats reckons it looks more like a badger or an otter, BUT, "Certainly there's enough evidence to suggest that there are definitely big cats out there and have been for a long time. I think the ultimate question is, are they breeding? Are they sustaining themselves or are they just isolated around the country?
"Even though the Loch Ness Monster doesn't exist and is much less likely to exist than these big cats, it's actually protected under European law. Whereas these cats, even though they're out there and they're very real, they're not protected at all and that's what we're trying to do".
