Over the years I've been collecting cat sightings etc I've become aware of around 1 dozen what I would call closequarter/aggressive encounters between humans and cats (I must point out that the cat was not the aggressor in every case). Some of these reports are direct from the witness (and I would class as of high credibility) others are reports from news papers (high possibility of exaggeration of the events).
What I would like to do would be to sort the wheat from the chaff. I will list below briefly the dozen or so incidents relating to big cats in Great Britain with rough geographical reference and I would like to hear anything related (other reports or versions of the same incidents) opinions etc or other such encounters you are aware of.
I'd also be interested to here peoples assesment of the authenticity of these incidents - hoax, misreporting, genuine etc.
