Moggy or mountain lion? Farmer captures 'mystery' feline on camera
Moggy or mountain lion? Farmer captures 'mystery' feline on camera

It could just be a moggy, but a farmer from the Market Rasen area claims a camera set up on his farm has recorded a ‘mystery feline’.

The farmer - who does not want to be named - believes the image could be that of a big cat - or even a mountain lion.

He said: “It’s completely different from a domestic cat.

“If someone told you it was a mountain lion, you would believe them.”

His wife says she has seen paw-prints left by a ‘big cat’ in the area.

The Rasen Mail spoke to several veterinary experts who suggested the photograph was ‘inconclusive.’

It’s not the first time alleged sightings of a big cat have been reported in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
