Black leopard seen at Sissinghurst
On 6th February 2011, a Mr Hamilton and his girlfriend were travelling from Sissinghurst towards Goudhurst on the A262 - a mile out of Sissinghurst, when a large black cat ran from left to right across the road, 10-15 metres ahead. The animal slinked into woodland. A black leopard has also been seen on several occasions at Lydd, on the marsh at Romney. The witness, a female, saw a similar animal 15 years previous.
