A London Mystery 

Well, this is pretty weird indeed:

Police have launched a huge search after sightings of a "cat-like" animal
the size of a labrador in a London suburb.

Scotland Yard appealed for vigilance after a member of the public
and a police officer saw the black creature, which has been likened to a

An armed police response vehicle with officers equipped with
rifles and Taser stun guns has been called in to patrol the area.

The "Beast of Sydenham" was spotted at about 2am today by a man in Sydenham Park putting his cat out. The man was attacked and scratched. He called an ambulance and police.

This seems quite straight out of a low-cost '60s British horror flick... it just lacks deaths, gore and a damsel in distress. I wonder what animal is that: a fugitive/abandoned panther? Or an overgrown wild cat? The latter case would be quite interesting, I say.
