The latest claimed sighting of the legendary Beast of Bodmin has come from a teenager – 45 miles from the moor were the big cat is said to prowl.
Amateur photographer Henry Warren, 19, was taking pictures in fields near his home in Gwinear, west Cornwall, when a huge cat like creature leapt out in front of him.
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.
It was declared a phantom in 1995 by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food but Henry thinks they're wrong.
He 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."
