I am always interested to see news about big cat sightings in the UK. The last was the Essex lion which eventually appeared to be simply a domestic cat. The latest sighting is in Bedford where two witnesses believe they have seen a lion. A helicopter with a thermal imaging camera, firearms officers and zoo workers with tranquilisers carried out a search for the lion but once again no lion was found. Police have said there is no on-going incident involving a lion. I wonder whether it was simply another oversized pussy cat.
