SIGHTING: Big cat spotted on the coast road at Talacre

Tanlan puma sighting

A big cat was spotted on the A548 at Tanlan, near Talacre, at around 6:30pm on New Years Eve. The dark grey feline was only a couple of miles from suspicious badger killings in Whitford and a few minutes along the coast road at Abakhan Fabrics, where a puma sighting was reported on New Years Day 2015.

Tommy got in touch to report the sighting and told us: “[I saw a] large cat roughly the size of a Labrador. On the road, where the road turns to a national speed limit.

“The cat looked dark grey in colour and headed to the forest.”

Whitford, Abakhan and Tanlan are all within the same two-mile radius, and as pumas are usually solitary animals roaming a territory of around 30 square miles, it’s highly likely it’s the same animal being spotted each time. This radius is only five miles from a sighting near Pentre Halkyn back in October.
