Well we have had one about flotsam so why not?
Has anyone ever seen strange wildlife that just shouldn't belong in the UK?
This has to be the best proof ever of big wildcats living in the UK. Awesome footage. There have been quite a few sightings near me as well. I don't think they escaped from somewhere - probably always been here.
Here's my story.
About 20 years ago when I first passed my driving test I was driving along a really remote mountain road just north of Swansea with my brother. The area is a true wilderness - unchanged since the l;ast ice age and really bleak as you will see from the pics.
It was about 11pm and we had never been on the road before so decided to turn around and head home. As we were turning we saw a massive WOLF just sitting there watching us.
To say we were scared is an understatement. We have seen wolves in places like the Pyrenees but they aren't supposed to be in Britain!!!
A few days later the local radio station had a phone in programme asking people for real life ghost stories. A man called in to say he was walking his dog in the hills when he saw a large wolf looking at him - he said it vanished before his eyes!!!
About a week later I saw 2 policemen with dogs and the shepard with a shotgun searching a small patch of forestry. They didn't find anything and that was that although I never forgot what I saw and driving there at night was always scary - especially as they filmed a part of the film "An American werewolf in London" up there.........
Anyway last year I was having a look through the local rag in a petrol station and there was a story that made me gasp. It said that a large wild dog had been seen prowling in an area called Craig Cefn parc which is very near where I saw the wolf. It said the police had shot the animal and found it's "lair". They kept saying it must have escaped from somewhere.
Why would a normal dog have escaped from somewhere and why would they head for such a remote place - i would have thought the local Macdonalds dustbins would have been better.
Anyway it can't have been the same animal I saw after almost 20 years so they must have been breeding. And the damn Police shot the poor thing.
