An expert in big cat sightings in the UK is giving a talk on his work in Nailsea on Saturday.

Danny Nineham has worked as a big cat consultant for the police and military for several decades.

Danny deals with attacks on livestock, pets and wildlife and has recently been investigating sightings of a panther in Bristol, which has killed a number of deer.

He said: “Three individuals have seen a black panther on the land and found dead deer carcasses. Thousands of people have reported their sighting to me over the decades.

“Big cats are everywhere. Living in among us in our towns, villages and woods, going about their business every night undetected in most cases, just like the urban fox.

“The cats I’m talking about include a puma or lynx.”

Danny is speaking at the Ring O’ Bells on Saturday from 6-10pm.

Tickets, priced £10, include a buffet and can be booked from 07501 962893.
