According to the husband of one of the witnesses, since March 2008 there have been several sightings of a similar animal by staff at Durham Tees Valley Airport. On one occasion one of the security staff had claimed that the cat had brushed past his leg in the dark. I find this a bit hard to believe unless he just has the one leg now.
Perhaps the reason for the regularity or reports is because we WANT to BELIEVE?
. . . a huge black cat walked quickly across the road in front of him. Certain that it was a panther he stopped the car hoping to see it going across the field. As he couldn't see it he got out and ran across the road for a better look. After watching for about a minute, he was just turning back to the car when he glanced down and saw that the big cat was laid in the ditch right next to where he was stood. Dirk gradually backed off and slowly got back into his car. As he had only been a matter of feet from the cat, he was sure it was a panther and not anything else. When he told his story at the time he was ribbed by colleagues, particularly because as a press photographer he had been too shocked to take a photo.

A professional photographer or videographer too shocked to use their camera is something I've heard first hand.
