Is This The Best Image Of The ”Beast Of Bodmin”?

Is this the ''Beast of Bodmin''?

Experts say a teenager’s snaps of what appears to be a large cat could indicate they are breeding.

Henry Warren, 19, was taking pictures in fields when the huge cat-like creature leapt out in front of him.

The sighting took place a few miles from remote Bodmin Moor, where the famous beast is said to roam.

There has been speculation the animal in the images could be the mythical ‘Beast of Bodmin’.

The student managed to rattle off several frames before the animal disappeared into undergrowth and has since reported the incident to the Plymouth-based British Big Cat Society.

Britain’s most famous big cat was first spotted in 1983 and there have been over 60 recorded sightings since. There have been sightings on Exmoor, Dartmoor and several other rural locations.

It was declared a phantom in 1995 by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food but Henry thinks they’re wrong.

Henry, of near Gwinear, west Cornwall, said: “I was taking pictures of our new house when I saw something run across the field and in front of my lens.

“It was absolutely massive and was hoping up and down like a large cat. There’s no way it could have been fox, a dog or anything else like that.

“It ran around 60 metres in just a few seconds and was leaping in the air with its front two legs first.

“I did some research after and thought it may be linked to the Beast of Bodmin – it certainly looks like a big cat.”
