Book Description

6 May 1993
Farmers on the fringe of Exmoor suddenly began losing their sheep at an alarming rate in the spring of 1983, and set up patrols to catch the predator. Yet, savaged and half-eaten corpses were left on the hills night after night with no clue as to the killer's identity, other than fleeting glimpses of a strange black panther. The police called in the commandos. Di Francis joined the hunt in search of new evidence of the catlike creatures that have been sighted around England and Scotland - with possibly one human victim. While the "panther" eludes her, the trail has led to a ferocious pair of black Scottish "wildcats" of unknown origin. Di Francis has also written "Cat Country". This book is an account of a wildlife mystery that led to the discovery of a new species of "wildcat", hitherto not recognized by science.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating! 8 Jan 2003
By "euology" - Published on
As soon as I saw this title for sale I just had to buy it. The whole book is fascinating in its facts and pictures of 'possible sightings'. Anything unusual or weird like this intrigues me and Di Francis has made this book a valued member of my personal library. I have lost count of the number of times I have re-read it. The first time after I had completed it, I immeditately wanted to purchase her second book on the same subject, but was unable to find it. When I do eventually obtain a copy I just know that it will be an excellent read!
