We’ve all heard about the Men in Black and their attempts to silence UFO witnesses. But are similar characters trying to intimidate and silence witnesses to ABCs (Alien Big Cats) in the UK? It sounds bizarre, but it may be true.
Anyway, it’s the subject of my latest Mysterious Universe article, which starts as follows:
“During the early part of 1998, the British Government’s House of Commons held a fascinating and arguably near-unique debate on the existence – or otherwise – of a particular breed of mystery animal that is widely rumored, and even accepted by many, to inhabit the confines of the British Isles: the so-called Alien Big Cats, or ABCs, as they have become infamously known.
“It scarcely needs mentioning that Britain is not home to an indigenous species of large cat. Nevertheless, for decades amazing stories have circulated from all across the nation of sightings of large, predatory cats that savagely feed on both livestock and wild animals and that terrify, intrigue and amaze the local populace in the process. And, of course, the media loves them, one and all.”
