British Mystery Big Cat Conference

Watchet zoo Tropiquaria will welcome big cat enthusiasts from across Britain for a major conference tomorrow (Friday).

Tropiquaria is hosting the second annual conference of the Big Cats in Britain group over the weekend.

Delegates and members of the public from all over the UK will be attending lectures, taking part in workshops and swapping information about alleged sightings of the mysterious creatures throughout the country.

Speakers are attending from as far away as Argyllshire in Scotland, and Teeside.

There will also be a series of displays, stalls, a quiz and a raffle.

From 7.30-9pm tomorrow, there will be a public debate for local people who may have experienced suspicious livestock losses or had sightings of big cats.

There is no charge for this session, which will be hosted by Jon Downes, the director of the Centre For Fortean Zoology, and there will be refreshments available.
