Wildcat or Lion?

Essex Wildcat
Essex is well known for ... well lets leave it at that. Suffice to say that the police in Essex have been on a manhunt for a lion that's supposedly on the loose. This is the image that sparked a big cat scare in Essex after walkers became convinced they had seen a lion in a field.

Police, who were handed the pictures of the lion, scrambled helicopters and marksmen in pursuit of the supposed beast. However, they called off the large-scale search today after 24 hours when officers found no trace of a lion.

A police spokesman said: "We believe what was seen on Sunday evening was either a large domestic cat or a wildcat. Extensive searches have been carried out, areas examined and witnesses spoken to; yet nothing has been found to suggest that a lion was in the area. We would like to thank the local community and holidaymakers for their patience and support throughout the past 24 hours as the police and media presence would have been somewhat overwhelming for them."
