Family spot "big cat" prowling around a churchyard

This is the chilling moment a family spotted a "big cat" prowling around the gravestones in a village churchyard.The mum and son were enjoying an evening stroll at an ancient church when they saw the large beast.Footage shows the animal, which resembles a puma or large wildcat, skulking around the graves in St Peter's Church, in Powick, Worcs.The 37-year-old son who filmed the animal on August 22 said: "I noticed it run across the churchyard, and I thought it was a fox."I even said, 'oh there's a fox.'"Then it stopped, and I saw it was some sort of big cat."It was the size of a large dog and had a huge tail which could only be a wildcat."After I realised it wasn't a fox, I started videoing."I was a little unnerved by it, and just a bit shocked."My mum was a bit scared to continue walk."The mum added: "I was quite shocked at the time."I wasn't sure what it was at first."I thought it was someone's dog off its lead.

And the colour of it was nothing like I had seen before."I even wondered if it was a fox."It certainly was big.

It's bigger than any UK domestic cat I can find."I looked up puma and it fits the description."Locals have now branded the beast the 'Powick Puma' and follows a spate of similar sightings in recent months.Village Jan Taylor, 45, said: "My son saw a large dark-coloured wildcat resting against some hay bales in a field nearby.

I think this could be the same one."As long as it doesn't attack anyone then I think it's fine but it's quite worrying if it appears confident enough to be walking around in broad daylight."MFL - TRYING FOR COMMENT FROM BIG CAT EXPERT
