A Serval in Kent

This photo has been doing the rounds, with claim that it shows a Serval, photographed in 2007. Sunlight, shade and other conditions permitting, this doesn't look anything like a Serval, but simply either a slinky domestic moggie or possibly a Jungle Cat if we had to reach for something exotic. It is difficult to determine actual size with no real height comparison in the picture, and the slight blurriness of the photo could certainly haze distinguishing features.

The Serval is a spotted cat with a yellowish coat, and is easily identifiable by its large ears which are used as a radar as they swivel in search for prey.
