The Bewl reservoir 'cat' again.....

It's rather sad that when a piece of possible 'big cat' evidence comes to light that those involved are either a) immediately ridiculed or b) accused of putting on a hoax. Over the past few weeks the photographs of an object apparently swimming in Bewl Reservoir have caused so much controversy with various internet trolls, cowards etc coming forward to ridicule just about everyone involved. It's a sorry state of affairs that in the current climate that every image is dismissed out of hand but this is what it has come down to due to the You Tube generation. Even so, whilst no-one can say for 100% what the photograph shows photographer David Burr has sent me two more images which hopefully may add extra spice to the mystery.

The main image shows an enhanced picture of the object. Now, many people have put forward opinions that the original silhouette shows a bird, such as a coot, swan or grebe, and we present here images of such birds which clearly DO NOT match. The image does NOT show an otter, deer, dog, mink, or fish either. As with all alleged evidence for anything unusual we naturally require more to go on and what sceptics need to realise is that people will go on researching, collecting evidence and data etc because if anything it's fun, so it is rather sad that so many people can become so nasty when such evidence is put forward. You'd think that some detractors would have something better to do with their lives rather than cowardly hide behind a PC screen rather than offer constructive debate. But even so, the other image shows just how shallow the reservoir in question can be and it would suggest that if this photograph does show a cat then it is literally in a few inches of water.

Some people - whether adults or children - have a genuine interest in so-called 'big cat' sightings in the UK, and it's a topic that brings much debate, it's just a shame that some of it is so unhealthy. But anyway, hopefully the silhouette images of swan, coot and grebe will prove that the photograph taken by Mr Burr is NOT a bird. All CONSTRUCTIVE thoughts are welcome.
