The Beast of Gretton

Posted by: Nick Redfern on April 8th, 2012

As I noted in my article of April 6 – ABCs and the Government – sightings of large and exotic cats have become near-commonplace in the British Isles. And those sightings are showing no signs of stopping, either.

In a new story titled “Panther sightings are causing a stir,” England’s Northants Evening Telegraph newspaper notes the following:

“Reported sightings of a panther-like cat are causing a stir in the north of the county. Several people in Gretton have reported seeing a large black animal in locations near the village. And, after speaking to people who claim to have seen the panther, villager Rob Clark is convinced their accounts are reliable. He said: ‘Everyone I spoke to is not, as far as I know, prone to flights of fancy or telling tall stories.'”

Of course, “panther-like” leaves things very much open to question regarding the specific identity of the cat; but, no doubt, the local media will remain hot on the trail, and hopefully, in time, we may learn more.

And if that has caught your attention, you can find the complete story here.

    Even scarier, in that same newspaper is an account of a 6 foot “Bunny on a Rampage” at West Lodge Farm Park, in Desborough this weekend.

    Yes. I saw that link and went to it.
    It made me wonder if the two stories are somehow related.

    The black panther could certainly put an end to the Giant Bunny’s Rampage.
