The Beast of Bodmin

The Beast of Bodmin

The Beast of Bodmin Moor was a black panther-like creature believed to inhabit Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. Since 1983, around sixty big cat sightings were recorded in the mid-Cornwall area and these were supported by numerous reports of mutilated livestock. The “beast”, supposedly three to five feet long and sporting white-yellow eyes, was one of Britain’s most feared animals.

The truth behind the legend is now emerging. In the wake of the escape from Dartmoor Zoo of Flaviu, a rare lynx, it has emerged that three pumas are believed to have been released into the wild by Mary Chipperfield, whose family owned Plymouth Zoo. Obliged to transfer the animals when the family zoo closed down, she is alleged to have released her favourite breeding pair along with a young male to keep them company rather than see them go into a new home.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
