Could a mysterious creature spotted on the side of a busy trunk road be a big cat?
Hazell Lund, from Stockton, is convinced of it.
Ms Lund was travelling along the A66 at about 11.30am on Sunday (June 22) when she saw what she is sure was a large black cat.
“At first I thought it was a black Labrador but I soon realised it wasn’t,” she said.
“It pounced like a cat and the way it walked and held itself was very cat like.
“I know what I saw and I am convinced it was a big cat.”
Unfortunately, Ms Lund did not have time to retrieve her phone from her bag to take a photograph of the creature before it darted out of view.
