Recently there have been several reports from the village of Biddenden concerning domestic cat deaths. The carcasses have been found often bereft of head and stripped clean, suggesting a large predatory animal is on the loose rather than the victims being taken by a dog or fox. These deaths echo similar cases from a few years ago when many domestic cats were found (or in some cases not found at all) decapitated and rasped off flesh. These sinister cases mainly took place around Orpington, Sidcup, Bexley, Bromley and towards Petts Wood and even as far as Sydenham where sightings of an enormous large black cat seemed to coincide with the discovery of eaten domestic cats.
Domestic cats, small dogs and foxes - as well as deer, sheep, ducks, geese, rabbits, pheasants, pigeons, squirrels, are all on the menu of large, roaming exotic cats - only recently a farmer in Sussex found a completely eaten calf which sported two extraordinary puncture marks in its skull. The way the animal had been killed an eaten suggested the work of a large cat such as a leopard.
