Welcome to the Big Cats In Britain Wildlife Trigger Camera Blog

Welcome to the Big Cats In Britain Wildlife Trigger Camera Blog

The Big Cats in Britain organisation, (BCIB), predominately searches for evidence of native and non native feline species living in the British Countryside. Part of our research includes the use of wildlife trigger cameras, also known as stealth cams or trail cams . These operate using infra-red technology to take pictures of any animal that passes the camera.

Our members have dozens of these cameras in various locations around the British Isles, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

This blog is dedicated to showing the general public, the animals we have captured on camera. These images are small snapshots of the diversity of animal life that can be found in our countryside.

We hope you enjoy them.......................

Has a Big Cat finally been captured on a trail cam in Canada

This image has not come from a member of the BCIB, nor is it from the UK. But if genuine, this animal appears to have been captured on the same sort of camera that we are using here in the UK.

Taken in Ontario, Canada, the animal does look on initial impressions to be a melanistic leopard, although without any scale to measure against, size cannot be confirmed. However a close up of the animal shows a tail with a tapered point, as would be expected on a domestic or feral cat. Leopards or jaguars have a blunt tip to their tails. Also questions should be asked why it has taken so long for the story to break, seeing as it appears to have been taken on the 18th April 2010

I'm sure you will all have your own opinions on the cats identity.
