Man-Beast Or Bear?

Over at my Man-Beast U.K. blog, you can find the latest story of an alleged Bigfoot sighting in the woods of Britain. Frankly, upon reading the article, I'm not convinced that this is what the witness saw. Indeed, it sounds more like a bear - and it's a fact that mystery bear sightings in Britain are actually more common that many people realize. Anyway, if you want to take a look at the story and judge for yourself, here it is!

Confused as to why the local press brought Bigfoot into the equation, surely an out of place bear is mystery enough ?! Interesting that the area of the sighting is on the edge of the quite dense Epping Forest which in the past has harboured several interesting wild animals from large cats to coyote's. And bears have been sighted on London's marshes in the past, and is also a place where many phantom bear legends exist.

Maybe the witness saw a large black leopard, it seems that his sighting was actually fleeting, so who knows what roams those woods.

Yeah, the Bigfoot connection is an odd one. I have to say that as soon as I read it, i thought about those ghostly bear stories.
