Has anyone seen it?

NO, I am not kidding. It is the subject of a programme on the telle that is on now.

Jim nope I have not seen the Black Beast of Exmoor or anywhere in the UK as it is nearer to a myth.

Nice one I think but a bit on the mystifying side though

BTW have you ever seen anything like this in the USA?

Not too sure I like this name; "The Black Beast of Exmoor"

Surely Native or African-Exmoorian Beast of Exmoor is the way to go.

All this P.C. stuff needs to be shoved into the rubbish bin. I would rather call a spade a spade, not a club, a heart or a diamond.

Paul the Black Beast of Exmoor is supposed to be either a Black panther or black puma.

"Then in July [of 1999], a 'lion' was seen in Pembrokeshire, and several people thought they saw one in South Yorkshire.  However, this one was convincingly explained as misidentifications of Rocky, a Rottweiler-retriever cross with eczema, which had been shaved apart from around it's head and the end of it's tail.  The Daily Star's banner headline was THE BEAST OF ECZEMA.

From the Fortean Times Alien Big Cat Round-up article, published in the Feb 2003 issue.

...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

JimBob we usually spell telle. as tele. as it is short for television. Perhaps you should stick to the wireless!

There is a lot of evidence for there being a beast but I guess lots of people have also seen bigfoot. If you would also like to know about Jinny Greenteeth, the water hag from Cheshire, I can furnish you with all the sightings too. People are so suggestable.

I saw a big black cat in Suffolk 1 night; a village called Monks Eleigh. It was longer than a German Shepherd dog. I didn't get a good look, though, as it was about 3am and the damned thing sprinted across the road in front of me.

By the way it moved, it was definitely a cat.
