This is just the most recent iteration of a modern English popular myth.
The first time I heard of it was when I was at university in the UK and was told hair-raising tales of the Surrey Panther, a beast that reputedly prowled the brakes and copses of the Stockbroker Belt. Of course it didn’t exist any more than this one does.
The English are forever making up stories about big cats roaming their country’s well-tamed marches. I think it embarrasses them to have a lion on the royal coat of arms but none in the country itself, outside of zoos and places like Longleat.
