Cuxton sighting...

A black leopard was seen on 24th November 2014 by a couple walking through woods. they had become lost and began to follow a trail which brought them out to a field when suddenly a large black cat ran across in front of them at a distance of 50 yards. The female witness present stated, "The animal was sleek with a very long tail and just so fast as it moved..." - this follows on from a few weeks previous when a Cuxton resident woke one night, looked out of his window and observed a big, black cat which was much bigger than the domestic cat and fox he'd seen earlier that night...

Swanley sighting...

"Just to let you know myself and my girlfriend sighted a big black cat walking across a big open field in Swanley two weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon at about 4pm (just as the sun was setting). We were driving back from the Swanley interchange on the A21 towards Sidcup and were just at the top of the hill driving past the petrol station and drive in McDonalds when looking left down towards some fields/stables at the end of the Cray valley golf course, we saw the large cat stalking through the field. We both looked at each other and said “Did you see what I just saw?” and we both said “Yes!”

Forest Hill 'panther' ?

"I saw a cat like creature in Forest Hill. I was in the Millennium Albion Woods and it ran past us, we disturbed it. I was freaked out as I was with my kids. It was not a deer, muntjac are supposed to inhabit this green area. I know what deer look like, this was a black feline animal, very swift, it was large too, so not a domestic cat.  It all happened so quickly and totally unexpected so it was difficult to make much out. What really caught my eye was its black colour, it moved very quickly like a cat, I would've expected small muntjac in there I have seen them elsewhere and this was not a deer. It was too fluid and powerful. It's size I would say was appx three foot from head to back legs. I can't say for sure I saw it's tail I'm afraid. It happened in an instant my kids didn't see it at all. It was bigger than a domestic cat, much bigger, obviously very shy. It reminded me of TV programmes I've watched about pumas or lynx. I thought, "I saw a deer it can't have been a big cat" but my eyes told me it was a cat. I'm convinced. I had never known of their existence until I got home and did a bit of research which is where I came across your stuff. It happened at about 11.30am on Tuesday 28th October, 2014. In the Albion Millennium Gardens in Forest Hill off Albion Villas Way".

Surrey 'panther'?

From a witness: "I have literally just seen it too whilst out on a run (12/10/2014 at 1pm)! I was running along Rickman Hill Road in Coulsdon, when I saw what looked like a large jet-black dog cross my path about 100 yards ahead. I couldn't get a glimpse of its head but had very large paws and a long tail that curled upwards at end. Having originally assumed it was a dog I carried on running, expecting there to be a driveway that it had walked into, but it was just dense woodland!

Just arrived back home and searched online and found this post, turns out I'm not going mad!"

Stalisfield sightings.

End of September 2014: "although I've not seen it myself, two independant sightings of a big, black cat near Stalisfield have been reported to me. One at the end of August and one this weekend. Both were by strangers to the area who stopped and warned me because I was out on my horse in the area."

The beast of Svendroog castle!

On the morning of 25th September 2014 a couple were walking within the vicinity of Svendroog Castle, at Oxleas Wood when they observed a large black cat staring into undergrowth as if stalking rabbits. One of the witnesses commented, "a large black cat was just in front of us, looking towards some bushes, it then went a short distance and disappeared into a near by bush. Wasn't quick enough to take a photo, but no doubt this was a big cat."
