Couple claim to have spotted the FEN TIGER

A couple have claimed to have spotted a large wild cat, known locally as the Fen Tiger, in the Suffolk countryside.The large feline has become a legend over the last 30 years, famous for traipsing around Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas. However, few people have ever actually been able to snap a picture or video the elusive cat. Jamie Newby, 46, from Wisbech, Cambs., and his partner Hayley spotted the cat about 6.30am and around 400 yards away from their AirBnB in Ipswich, Suffolk. He said: "My girlfriend spotted it at first as she opened the curtains 6:30am of our the Airbnb bedroom we were staying in."At first she thought it was maybe a small deer.

So I grabbed my camera as we'd like to have caught a picture of it. "But as soon as the camera focused, I could see it was a very large cat - about the size of medium sized dog."It had a very powerful build on its upper, haunches it had vertical black stripes could only really see the root of the tail for most of the sighting but the tail was long and looked thick."The footage appears to show a large cat, with markings similar to a tabby.The Fen Tiger was first reported in 1982 in Cottenham, Cambs., and since then hundreds of sightings of the big cat have been recorded across the Cambridgeshire region.Residents called police 63 times from 1998 to 2010 about the mysterious creature and dozens of reports have been recorded since.Jamie added: "It was only after the sighting, we started Googling to see if we could find anything that resembles it or any previous sightings in that area. "Who knows Autumn Watch on the BBC might like the footage."
