A driver reportedly spotted a creature that looked like a “black puma” on the M6.
Phil, who declined to give his last name, said he was traveling north on the M6 and leaving at the Lymm interchange in Warrington, where the motorway meets the M56 and A50 on Saturday 23 October.
It was around 4 p.m. that day when Phil claims to have seen the creature in a field on the opposite side of the M6 at the gas station and at McDonald’s.

He thinks the “big cat” was stalking sheep and “waiting to pounce”.
The driver reported the sighting to Puma Watch North Wales – a group set up to document the sightings and educate suspects of big cats – reported the sighting to them.
He told the group: “I came out of the junction of the M6 Lymm – I was heading north at that time.
“To my left, in a field, I saw a big black cat lying on its stomach, like cats do when they wait to pounce on something.
“I suspect he was interested in sheep. He had a long black tail.
“Definitely bigger than a normal cat.”
Last week, ECHO reported that a woman remained “in disbelief” after spotting an animal that allegedly looked like a “black panther” in Wirral.
The woman was walking her dog around 4 p.m. on Wednesday October 27 when she saw the animal on the promenade in New Brighton.
She shared what happened in a community group on Facebook in hopes of finding others who had seen the animal and knew what it was.
The woman described the creature as a “black panther-like thing” and said she had seen similar reports in the area.
She said: “I didn’t have time to take a picture because I was just in disbelief and honestly a little scared.”
In response to his post, other residents said they saw similar reports in the Bidston Hill and Irby neighborhoods in Wirral.
In September, ECHO reported that a man was walking his dog on Whitefield Common when he claimed to have seen a “big black cat” near trees.
Two weeks earlier, another person also claimed to have spotted a mysterious creature with a description of a “big cat,” just a two-minute walk from where Jon claimed to have seen the recent sighting.
Previous big cat sightings on the Wirral also include Willaston, Prenton, Bidston Hill, and Burton Woods.
