A PANTHER is feared to be prowl- ing south-east London for new victims today after a pet cat was found mauled to death. The remains were discovered in the neighbourhood where the so-called Sydenham Panther is believed to have struck four years ago. The dead cat was discovered by Sara Hill, 32, as she walked her dogs with her son, Archie, eight months. She said the feline skele- ton had been entirely stripped of flesh -- yet whatever killed it had left the head untouched. Ms Hill, a mother of three, said: It could only have been a big cat. No other animal would do that kind of damage. A dog would have torn it limb from limb and a fox would have finished it off. Its a real worry that an animal like this could be on the loose. The British Big Cat Society estimates that about 100 animals similar in size to panthers could be roaming Britain. Mark Fraser, from Big Cats In Britain, said: This could be the work of a big cat but we need more evidence. In Sydenham in March 2005, Tony Holder, 40, claimed to have rescued his cat Kit-Kat from a 5ft-long beast that struck in the early hours. The former soldier was left with cuts and bruises after wres- tling the animal in his back garden. He said at the time: It had pinned the cat down, but when it saw me it let the cat go and jumped on my chest, knocking me to the ground. I could see these huge teeth and the whites of its eyes just inches from my face. After that attack, police armed with stun guns and tranquilliser rifles sealed off the streets and hunted the beast by torchlight. In 2002, officers were called to reports of a large black cat prowling woodland in Shooters Hill but were unable to find the animal.
