Puma sighted three times
In an area of rural Maidstone, currently under investigation, several witnesses have reported seeing a puma on three occasions over the last few months. The witnesses - all male - were working for a farmer when they observed a large cat through night vision binoculars, and then during daylight as the animal sped across a field as they turned into the area in a vehicle. So intrigued were they by the animal that they decided to leave a selection of dead rabbits and visits out and returned a few hours later to find them gone. This isn't the first time a puma has been seen in the area, and there were rumours that in 1987 four pumas were released not far from the location. These of course would be dead by now, but it leaves us wondering just how many of these animals are around.
