Last big cat sighting reported to Puma Watch North Waes.

JB said: “I was traveling from Chester to Tarporley on the A51.

“Right next to the Tarvin roundabout (junction with the A54), I accelerated to go forward, and an animal like a big cat (the size of a Labrador) crossed the road in front of my car.

“He seemed to be black, and at first I thought it was a badger, but his gait was like a cat sprinting.

“The animal seemed to take a break and almost mis-timed the crossing – it got caught in my headlights as it rushed forward, and it wasn’t until after that I recorded what I would have. could see. ”

This last sighting has been added to the Puma Watch interactive map.

This is the latest of a number of sightings at Chester, Ellesmere Port, Frodsham and Wirral.

Puma Watch founder Tony Jones said: “Sightings of big cats have already been recorded in the area, both around Chester and in the countryside and villages of Cheshire. Last month we shared a report of “black puma” spotted near M6 Lymm Interchange Other recent sightings include an animal crossing the M56 behind Costco Chester and another sheep stalking near the M56 Chester Services.

“A large cat was also filmed at Frodsham, while in Chester sightings include what could have been a puma near Blacon. Just along the canal to the north, a large black animal with a very long tail was spotted twice in a week, around the abandoned Old Oaks Golf Course and Countess of Chester State Park. Sightings followed a 4ft long cat “with a big tail” spotted twice in one night in the fields bordering Blacon, behind Sealand Road Asda.

As seen with the now famous Llandundo goats, which began to roam the deserted city streets during the coronavirus shutdowns, it is likely that reduced levels of human activity over the past year are encouraging them. big cats to roam further up the hills towards more populated areas. ”
