Interesting. A video would answer the story in two seconds, so why no video?
The first thing I looked at was the gait. It doesn't look like a big cat, they are more lithe and graceful, and it looks far too big and powerful for a dog, and i've seen a 200 pound mastiff. My gut tells me this is an escaped circus bear, there are many stories of circus animals on the loose. But I could be wrong, The weird thing is looks like a giant Hyena-A cryptid maybe? better get Mulder on the phone...

The inward pointing front right paw as it steps forward... the high left shoulder blade...
the long tail, the shiny coat, and the funny face (Jaguars have a funny shaped face)...
Absolutely no doubt in my mind that it's a Black Jaguar.
What it's doing wandering through the English countryside on the other hand LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
I have no idea.
But I am so glad we finally have photographic evidence, albeit a bit grainy, after all the sightings.
Could be a pet dog.

Yep, I'm no expert but the way the cat tail mingles with the bear head. It's either a weird model someone built or a bear model with a cat tail shopped in.
I don't need to be an expert to see it.
Edit to add: Whether it's a model or a Photoshop, the 'cat tail' is part of the fencing. Maybe it really is a real bear. Stranger things have happened.

It looks feline to me although I'm certainly no expert. There is however, one feature that has me leaning toward my conclusion...
I could be totally wrong so correct me if anyone here knows better but the way its shoulder blade is raised in the above image strikes me as how a big cat appears whilst walking.
Like I said I could be totally off but that feature doesn't seem as prominent in canines.
