Wouldn't accuse you of being too cynical, but I'm afraid you're definitely going to be charged with putting the cat amongst the pigeons (groan)A big cat was seen in a field near Dalton. Just out of curiosity, was that sighting, by any chance during a paid visit to south lakes safari park that's near Dalton? Did you pay to see it?
Is that being too cynical? I'm not saying the person didn't see what they claim to have seen, just was it seen in the zoo in the area? These stories always seem to include at least one flaky character.
