News from the U.K., from the Independent newspaper:
“Two City of London forest keepers had quite a fright on Wednesday when they peered through the fog and spotted what appeared to be a black panther in Epping Forest, Essex.
“Upon closer inspection, however, the pair realised it was simply a stuffed toy which had been left there from fly-tipping and placed on the branch of a tree.”
It’s a pity that idiots do this, as the only thing it achieves is to make people think the legitimate cases are likely to be hoaxes too – when they most certainly are not.
Here’s the complete article, with additional photos of the “black panther” that wasn’t.
