I know about the model down near the station. 

The one I saw years ago was very real. And a model doesn’t leave a footprint dried in the mud ;-)

My son saw one down by the station early train , must have been about 1984

Don't know - but I remember this thread from 10 years ago!

Hi Rachel,

I've lived in the area for 20 years and I've heard several stories of sightings. My sister told me that she saw something on her journey home to Bicester just a few weeks ago :-)

While out walking today, beyond Hundley Way towards Ditchley, I spotted a footprint in the dried mud and was struck by its size. I took a photo of it and sent it to a big cat contact, who sent me a side by side comparison of dog and big cat paw prints and agreed with me that this looks very big cat-like. I can’t post a picture here but you can see it in my tweet: wym-1590005847822

I did see a black panther on the way into Charlbury from Woodstock a few years ago and I was wondering whether anyone else had seen one recently?
