A CREATURE described as 'a massive black cat' has been captured on video.

Jonathan Terry said the creature, which he spotted prowling the fields to the rear of his house in Trelogan, was at least the size of a sheep and possibly even bigger.

It was a distance of two fields away when he filmed it from the kitchen window.

Jonathan reported the sighting to Puma Watch North Wales, a group set up to investigate and raise awareness of big cat sightings in the area.

In the report, Jonathan said: “Seen out of the corner of my eye through the kitchen window overlooking the fields behind the house.

“Filmed as I have been reading about these sightings and it looked far too big to be a regular cat and was more like the size of a sheep or possibly bigger.”

In the video, people can be heard saying “that’s massive”, “well it is massive ’cause obviously you can see it from here” and “it’s stalking something innit?”.

This latest encounter is close to other sightings in Talacre, Whitford, Pentre Halkyn and Abergele.

Puma Watch founder Tony Jones says there is increasing evidence to support the theory of a small population of big cats thriving in North Wales.

Tony said: "Big cats such as pumas are solitary with a hunting range of dozens of miles. They’re mostly spotted in Snowdonia and the Clwydian hills but reports of sightings in urban locations some distance from these areas are becoming more frequent.

"As seen with Llandundo’s now-famous goats, who have taken to roaming the town’s deserted streets during the coronavirus lockdowns, it’s likely that the reduced levels of human activity over the last year is encouraging big cats to roam further from the hills into more populated areas."

Due to the flurry of sightings in his constituency, MP for Delyn Rob Roberts wrote to the Welsh Government's Environment Minister Lesley Griffiths.

She replied that reports received by the Welsh Government are treated seriously and investigated.

She said: “The Welsh Government’s policy is to investigate any reports received by the Department for Economy, Skills and Natural Resources of alleged sightings and attacks by big cats on livestock in Wales.”
