A “big cat the size of a sheep” has been caught on camera prowling the fields behind a house.
Jonathan Terry was in his kitchen in Trelogan, Flintshire, North Wales, when he spotted a four-legged black figure lurking in the distance.
He quickly whipped out his phone and started filming the scene, reports Cheshire Live.
His grainy footage shows the animal slowly moving across a field as it appears to search for food.
“That’s massive,” Jonathan says as the camera rolls.
A woman’s voice then replies: “Well, it is massive because you can see it from here.”
The sighting was reported to Puma Watch North Wales, a site dedicated to sharing supposed sightings of big cats in the region.
Jonathan told the site: “I saw it out of the corner of my eye through the kitchen window overlooking the fields behind the house.
“Filmed as I have been reading about these sightings and it looked far too big to be a regular cat and was more like the size of a sheep or possibly bigger.”
According to Puma Watch North Wales, this recent sighting is within two miles of recent sightings in Talacre and Whitford in North Wales.
Back in December, a McDonald’s driver also snapped what he believed was an “enormous” big cat in Chester.
Richard Evans, 24, claims his picture showed the outline of a mysterious creature near some bushes.
He later told Puma North Wales: “I was out on my bike coming back into town after delivering someone's McDonald's when I spotted an enormous big cat across the river on the meadows.
“It was prowling along the edge of the long grass then disappeared into the undergrowth. It was absolutely massive though, like nothing I've ever seen."
“I pulled over to take a picture and tried to shout to a dog walker nearby but they couldn't hear me.”
While sightings of “big cats” are often dismissed as nothing more than pet felines, experts believe there could be as many as 500 of the wild creatures in Britain.
They suggest they exist to help to keep the population of deer and other large mammals in check.
Animal carcasses with tooth imprints on their bones that could only be made by a non-native species have previously been identified – fuelling speculation.
Fears of a “big cat” on the loose were also fueled last year when locals spotted a massive “paw print”.
