"My friends and I were driving through Hartley Bottom last night (12th May 2011) at about
11.15 when we saw about 30 yards or so in front of us a fox go across the
road followed by a black creature and then another fox. I was driving and
didn't say anything, a couple of minutes later one of my friends asked if I
thought that was a panther crossing the road. We then realised that we had
all seen the same thing and decided we felt it was too big to be a domestic
It was probably the size of a labrador dog but had a feline sleek shape and
the movement was quite different to the fox it was more of a glide.
What was strange was that it appeared to be quite close to the foxes. Have
you ever heard of this before?"
