If you go down . . .

to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise – particularly if those woods are the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire !!!

15 year old Kim Howells and her 8 year old cousin Sophie Gwynne were walking through the woods near their home when they saw a large black cat sat under a tree.

The cat began to follow/stalk (?) them. When they looked over their shoulder it was no more than 5metres behind them. The terrified girls ran all the way home.

They were in a terrible state when they arrived – their feet and legs all scratched as a result of running through some brambles to escape the beast, which they later identified as a panther after Sophie’s mum showed them some pictures on the internet.

It is not the first time a large black beast has been reported in the area.

Fortunately for the girls, the panther must recently have eaten otherwise it is doubtful they would have been able to outrun a panther that was only 5 meters behind them and looking for a bite to eat !!!
