Big cat spotted near houses and schools

A big cat has been reported roaming the north Dorset countryside near two schools.

The creature has been described as being similar to a leopard in appearance and size and was seen late at night and in the early hours of the morning in three locations around the county this month.

Dorset Police have received three reports of the big cat in just over a week.

It was first sighted close to Milton Abbas Primary School at around 11pm on July 7, then Bryanston School at 3am on July 8 before being spotted in the back garden of a house in Nether Compton at around 4.20am on July 15.
