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.......................

Witness states the following about the animal "we estimated that the animal was too large for a domestic cat but smaller than a panther."

2006  - Cannock Chase, Staffordshire.

These images were sent to us by a witness who wishes to remain anonymous. They claim these were taken in the Cannock Chase area in 2006. Of the three, I think the one with the animal near the equestrian fences looks the  most interesting. You may have to click on the images to see the full size images in order to view the animals. We cannot confirm however when or where these photographs were taken , and make no claim that they show a "big cat"
