Epping Forest "Big Cat" Sighting Was a Posh Child's Expensive Teddy

By Gary Cutlack on at

This image of some sort of wild beast sitting majestically in a tree in the fog of Epping Forest was put online by park staff, but their lack of alarm and interest in this "Big Cat" rather gave the game away.

Sadly, the Epping Forest Big Cat was just a soft toy. A sad soft toy, as it was found by rangers in a pile of rubbish someone had fly-tipped in the park, alongside other random household and building waste. What sort of cold-hearted man would dump a teddy in the woods? [Independent]
