Big cat scare on Lake District ridge

Those who like to put on running shoes and take to the gentler hills of the southern part of the Lake District may have 'paws' for thought, after an alleged big cat sighting.

Joggers Angela Jones and Eve Grayson told the Westmorland Gazette that they saw the creature while running on Scout Scar, a limestone escarpment just inside the national park boundary.

The pair, who come from Kendal, said they came within four metres of the creature, with Ms Jones saying: "We stopped, shone our head torches towards it to get a better look and saw two orange eyes and the outline of a large feline animal."

Following the incident, the joggers said they will never run in the area after dark again.

And it is not the only reported sighting of a big cat in the area in recent years.

Other unusual creatures reported in the Lake District include Bownessie, Windermere's answer to the Loch Ness monster.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801280240-ADNFCR
