The Beast Of Bodmin Moor, has been sighted by numerous witnesses, in Bodmin Moor - Cornwall (SW England - UK), from 1971 to present. The creature has been reported as looking like a black panther or dark colored mountain lion, with large white-yellow eyes. It's size has been reported as ranging from 3-5 feet long for the body, with a tail of roughly 18-24 inches. The creature makes the usual hissing and growling sounds of a large cat such as a panther or mountain lion, but also has made what sounds like a woman screaming, only the sound is very loud and down-right scary.
The creature haunts one of the top sites of the world for ancient magical practices and services. The area is home to ancient stone circles and burial mounds. There are Even giant tracts of land, shaped like figures of the zodiac that make up the area. The area was also a frequent place visited by the knights templars.
Miners who used to mine cobalt in the area for years reported the mines were full of demons, this is where the names 'kobolds' or minegoblins came from. Soldiers from the British army tracked and had the creature surrounded in a barn. The soldiers moved in towards the barn forming a circle as they neared it, when they entered the barn the creature had vanished.
The story about the creature vanishing after it was trapped inside a barn, is certainly a sign that the creature may be a spiritual being, but it could be possible that the creature found another way to escape, such as a mine shaft, since the area is a source of many old cobalt mines. It seems very strange though, that this creature has Been documented many times on video, has left tracks and multiple dead animals, has been tracked by soldiers, and sharp shooters, and still not one has been captured or killed.
