Kent 'big cat' updates

Over the past few weeks there have been more reports, mostly of black leopard in the Kent wilds and including the recent discovery of a deer carcass, photographed by James Mitson. The throat area of the animal sported several puncture marks. A black leopard has been reported from the Allington area of Maidstone by a female witness who observed the animal in her back garden. She reported the sighting to the police. There have also been a number of sightings from an undisclosed area of rural Gravesend where two black leopards have been sighted together.

I was running down Wrotham Road Gravesend two years ago, and saw a huge, very dark cat with a very long thick tail sprinting left to right across this field. http://goo.gl/maps/0GJaj

It looked to me like a black panther but I shrugged it off until I heard about similar sightings recently. Really very interesting stuff!
