Big black cat video captured: Called “Beast of Stroud”

Catcha!Six-foot Big Cat captured on video| The Sun .

A LEOPARD-like creature 6ft from nose to tail is caught on video bounding across a field at dusk — which an expert believes is final proof Britain’s Big Cats really do exist.

The film was taken by teaching assistant Coryn Memory close to the site of a recent spate of deer killings.

Wildlife expert Frank Tunbridge, who has spent 25 years investigating Big Cats in the Cotswolds, described the film as “conclusive proof” they exist.

To work out the animal’s size, he was filmed with a cut-out of a Big Cat at the spot where the “Beast Of Stroud” was filmed. That footage was then superimposed over the original.

It showed the Big Cat was even bigger than his estimate — 6ft long and 2ft high to the top of its shoulder.

Here is the video.

Many questions remain here. There is some reasonable evidence to suggest that large cats have established themselves in the U.K. but, this one, I’m not very convinced by this far away video. Errors get magnified as the video gets farther away.

This video is exclusive to tabloid, The Sun; the page is painful to look at, with all the photos of melanistic leopards, also called black panthers.  They do push the hype.

    Definatley NOT a house cat. Interesting to say the least. About the size of a young adult or older juvenile big cat. then again in that climate there is no benchmark as to how big they would get.
