Big Cats in Britain 2008 lectures can now be viewed on CFZtv

The Centre for Fortean Zoology have posted various videos of the speakers who lectured at last weekend's Big Cats in Britain 2008 conference at Tropiquaria in Somerset.

So if anyone missed the conference then you can visit CFZtv site.

One of the conference videos (shown below), features Jonathan McGowan, who mentions our investigation into mysterious cats sighted on Portland last year.(see previous blog entry).

Jonathan McGowan is Deputy Curator at the Bournemouth Natural Science Society, and head of its Mammals Section. He is a native of Dorset, an expert on both its rare and common fauna, and has observed both puma and panther-like big cats in the wild in the county several times, the first occasion being while he was badger watching in 1984.
