There have been more than 100 sightings of exotic and unidentified animals in England since 2005, according to a dossier compiled by Natural England.
They are the stuff of rural legend - but for decades, alleged sightings of big cats stalking the British countryside have been dismissed as hoax or fantasy.
Yet now the head of a Government agency responsible for investigating such incidents has declared that he believes these mysterious creatures do indeed exist.
His comments follow the release of a dossier by Natural England which lists more than 100 sightings of exotic, non-native and unidentified animals in England since 2005.
Of these, 38 were "big cats". In some cases, members of the public claimed to have seen the creature itself; on other occasions, they reported finding farm or wild animals which had been attacked or killed.
The documents - Britain's "big cats X Files" - show the extent to which Natural England takes the reports seriously.
The agency has launched several investigations, involving site visits by officials and the drafting in of specialist vets to examine injuries.
Big cat sightings have been reported all over England. In some areas they have spawned legends, such as the so-called Beast of Bodmin in the south west.

Um, it looks like a labrador with an undocked tail. I would know, I had one once.
And even if that was a cat, it's not all that unreasonably sized.
But my vote is black lab.
