Another big cat sighting was reported in the Amersham area last month.

On the Big Cats of the Chilterns (BCoCA) Facebook page, it was revealed that a large black cat had been spotted on the edge of the town on Monday, December 19.

They also shared a graphic image of a deer that had allegedly been killed by the animal, which has been frequently seen around the local area and has been nicknamed the Beast of Bucks.

The photo showed the deer missing its back legs and part of its rib cage.

BCoCA posted on Facebook: “Very exciting activity once again around the edge of Amersham. Can’t be too specific on the location but we have more black cat sightings.

“Even better, we have a deer kill with all the classic signs; back leg removed, chewed-up rib cage and very clean sheering of flesh.”

One commenter described it as a “fresh kill” and said that they had also previously spotted a half-eaten fox in a different location.

This isn’t the first time that local residents have claimed to have spotted this mysterious creature in Buckinghamshire.

As reported in the November edition of AMERSHAMnews, there were sightings of a “black leopard-like cat” in fields in East Amersham on October 16, according to BCoCA.

A few days later, BCoCA reported that there had been another two sightings of a “labrador-sized black cat” in Chesham.

Prior to this, there had been more than five reports of a “panther-like” animal crossing London Road in Amersham.

The BCoCA administrator commented that they had seen numerous cats along the M25 on the border between Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
