big cat research in Sussex


Polegate big cat sighting

Posted on April 28, 2014 at 5:50 PM

A big cat with a long slender body and  the characteristic long slightly curved tail was seen last week in the Polegate area walking nonchalantly amongst rabbits in a field who ignored the predator in their presence. At this time of year rabbits are feeding increasingly in daylight and becoming braver by the day when many rabbit sentries posted will give advance warning of impending doom (Lockley) I feel sure the big cats are targeting rabbits very much at this time of year but much earlier in the morning than this sighting undoubtedly was...The cat seen was not the Eastbourne puma type brown cat seen very much last year but was of the sleeker,black variety most often seen in this part of East Sussex...

I`m often out in st leonards forest on my mountain bike. Plenty of deer and rabbits. I`m keeping my eyes open for anything more exotic!
