Snaking Around the Chase...

As readers of this blog will be aware, I am always interested to hear of (and report on) sightings of weird and exotic beasts in the woods of Britain's Cannock Chase - situated only a few miles from where I grew up.

Indeed, over the last few years, as my previous posts here have shown, it seems that the Chase has been literally invaded by everything from Bigfoot to werewolves, from big cats to ghostly black dogs, and from wild boar to wallabies.

And now there's this out of place critter too. Of course, this new, and unfortunate, story of a Cannock Chase beast has a very down-to-earth explanation: it's called an irresponsible owner. If you can't look after them, don't buy them - it really is that simple!

Are you planning to do more stuff on Cannock Chase I read Man Monkey and the rest of the mystery is intriguing. Seems there are a lot of questions still out there.

Yes, Jon Downes of the CFZ is going to publish a book from me at some point called Mystery Animals of Staffordshire, which will contain a lot of Cannock Chase material. I'll keep people informed when it's going to be published.
