Walker's big cat sighting terror

A pensioner was left terrified after she encountered a huge black cat while out walking her dog.

Julia Gibson and her mongrel Eden were going across heathland near their home in Winfrith when the incident happened yesterday afternoon.

They were walking round a small hill when Eden suddenly chased after what looked like a large black cat. It immediately fled away, climbed a tree and lay along a high branch.

Julia got to the dog, saw the animal in the tree and called Eden away to safety.

She phoned her husband Dennis for help, but as soon as the dog left the tree the animal ran off across fields in the direction of Owermoigne.
