dangerous animals act


An out of place animal is a creature that is seen outside its typical demographic. Out of place animals are seen all over the world; kangaroos in the USA, big cats in the forests of England, alligators in Canada, etc. These animals are simply not meant to be in the area where they are sighted or captured. Most commonly, these animals were previously pets that people might have let go in the wild after being unable to care for them anymore. That is the case of a large number of big cat species that were let into the wild in England after the  Dangerous Wild Animals Act of 1976 was put into action. However this cannot be the proven cause for all out of place animal sightings.

You and Owen had been married for two years, and surprisingly you two had stayed together after all those years. But it had taken Owen seven years to understand that he needed to wake up with you by his side every morning.

And the wedding had been a lovely evening with families and friends, even the few friends Owen had made in the navy visited him on the big day.

You had however been away on family business and could not stand still as you waited for the ferry to get loading, you had texted Owen that you were on the ferry and got the picture of both him and the four girls.

11 year old Josh Hopkins was attacked while playing outside his home in Trellech, Monmouthshire, Wales. He was playing outside with his brother on the 25th of August in 2000 when the terrifying moment occurred. Hopkins originally thought the animal was his pet cat from afar. He stated: “I saw a big black tail and thought it was Sylvester, but then it jumped up and slashed me in the face and tried to pull my head into his mouth.” No reports from zoos had claimed there was a missing animal so this was chalked up to being an Alien Big Cat

Large breeds of cat - lions, panthers, tigers, and the like - were kept as fashionable pets in the late 1960s and early 1970s. After the Dangerous Wild Animals Act of 1976 made owning these animals illegal, people began releasing their pet big cats into the wild where they began breeding and thriving. Alien Big Cats are seen all around the world and are called such because they are alien to the areas they are seen in. 

This photo of the proposed Beast of Trowbridge was captured in August of 2013 in Winsley, England. Herbert and Doreen Smith caught the photo when out walking; Mr Smith told the Wiltshire Times, “Our first impression was sheer astonishment, we really could not believe our eyes at what we were seeing. The animal was eating what we believe it had just caught. There was a lot of rabbits about so I expect it was having breakfast. I was about 20ft away from it whilst it was eating, it looked up at me for a couple of seconds then resumed eating. If it wasn’t for my wife tugging at my arm to get me out of there, I would of stayed observing this magnificent animal.”

The creature has been seen for years in the area and is not the only large feline spotted in England. Big cats used to be kept as pets in the 60s and 70s by people in England and were released into dense woods when they grew too large. A flurry of large cat releases into the wild happened after the Dangerous Animals Act was enacted in 1976.

anonymous asked:

The first pic of the Bodmin Moor definitely looks like a puma... Or at least its tail is as long as a puma's is. Are they native to England?

No, they aren’t native. It is thought that these “beasts” are all large cat species. They are nicknamed Alien Big Cats - big cats that are found outside their usual demographic. In 1976, the Dangerous Wild Animals Act was established which was a “law of the United Kingdom that was originally enacted to deal with the increasing fashion in the late 1960s and early 1970s of people keeping interesting pets which were often from the more dangerous species, as well as hybrids between wild and domestic species.” After this act, it was thought that a large number of people just released their pet big cats into the wild. They have been breeding and thriving ever since.
