Roaring Dorset! free pdf Are big cats roaming Dorset? What's the evidence? Have you seen one? Sightings and reports of big cats roaming Britain now amount to thousands each year, and Dorset is a hot-spot for encounters with these strange creatures. Whether you are a firm believer, open-minded or sceptical, this book brings together all the county's known sightings of these mysterious panther-, lynx- and puma-like animals, to help you make up your own mind.

In her best-selling book Mystery Big Cats, Merrily Harpur investigated the phenomenon nationwide and received huge critical acclaim. Now she focuses on her home county of Dorset, location of some of the best, closest and most vivid encounters.
