Mystery of the Beast of Brum
Woman catches ‘big cat’ prowling around bins
A HOMEOWNER believes she has CCTV evidence of a big cat dubbed the Beast the Birmingham.
Dawn Paige, 53, became suspicious after finding her wheelie bins knocked over.
The teaching assistant checked her security camera and was horrified by the images.
They show the mystery beast prowling by bins in Oldbury, West Mids.
Dawn said: “I saw my bins had been moved and I thought it was kids messing around. I had the shock of my life when I saw that thing come into view [on camera]. I was shaking.
“At first I thought it must be a big dog, but it moves like a cat. I took the footage into work and asked some of the teachers what they thought. They agree it looks like a leopard, or a lioness. “I’ve got a little dog and I’m terrified for her safety.” Neighbour Rache l George, 47, put the images on Facebook in a bid to identify the beast. She said: “There were so many people worried about what it might be, and thousands saying they thought it was a big cat. “I wanted to warn people living here, especially if they have children. I am particularly scared, I work night shifts.” Dawn has checked with nearby Dudley Zoo but it had no missing animals.
