Big Cats in Britain

Big Cats are said to roam the British Isles and Ireland even now as you are sitting and reading this. People from all walks of life encounter these mysterious felines on a daily basis in every nook and cranny of these two countries. Most are jet-black, some are white, some are brown, in fact big cats of every description and colour are seen by some unsuspecting person while on his or her daily business.

We are the largest and most active group in the British Isles and Ireland. Enter to discover just what may be lurking in our pleasant green fields.
