Sightings of a mysterious big cat have been a feature of North Cornwall over the past 20 to 30 years and, according to the Cornish Guardian, the creature may have returned.
Those who have spotted the animal have described it variously as a large black animal possibly over two feet in height, puma-like, maybe a wild cat.
Seven different reports of the secretive creature apparently ranging across North Cornwall over recent weeks will re-ignite interest in the mysterious animal.
However, the creature may not be quite so enigmatic after all. Last year, it was reported that, in fact, Mary Chipperfield had released three pumas into the wild when her circus at Plymouth had to close.
