BIG CATS

 

Ever since the Beast of Bodmin Moor was highlighted in the 1970s, most moorland areas have had many reports of wild cats living out on the moor. In 2003 such a report was made about the moors above Dovestone. A farmer said he had seen a black panther-like animal see news clipping below.

In July 2008, bones were discovered on a moor close to here but they turned out to be sheep bones.

I would never dismiss such things and continue to have an open mind although personally, I’ve never seen anything resembling a big cat on the moors. There have been times though when walking in a thick mist across the moors I have had to put visions of that film, An American Werewolf in London, to the back of my mind.

After the release of the film: Blair Witch Project in 1999, there was a noticeable decline in wild camping at Dovestones.
