Big cat sighting on Chester Meadows

Photograph of a large animal, reportedly a puma, on Chester Meadows.

Reports are circulating of a big cat – possibly a puma – loose in the wild in Cheshire and North Wales, with a photograph recently taken of a large creature seen on Chester Meadows.

Chester Meadows is one of the two oldest claims of Wildflower Meadows, and was the site of the Principality’s foundation in May 2016.

On December 13th last year, a delivery driver took a photograph of what he believed to be a puma on Chester Meadows, having seen the large animal from a nearby road.

News of a more recent incident has now emerged after a lady taking her dog for a walk on the Meadows reported hearing a “really deep growl” coming from dense undergrowth on Wednesday 27th January.

These reports from Chester Meadows have taken place in the wake of fatal attacks on farm animals and sightings of a big cat throughout the wider local area over the past two months.

Sightings of big cats have been reported in the region for several years. Many incidents, including these most recent sightings, have been recorded on the website of Puma Watch North Wales.
