Cryptid big cat filmed in Slovakia

big cat cryptid

On the news here there was an interesting piece about a large cat, Beast of Bodmin style, which had been filmed in Eastern Slovakia, just 15 miles from where I live, close to the town of Bardejov. The attached photograph is a still from the video shown on the news site –

Experts have stated that it’s neither a lynx nor a wild cat and have suggested a lion or a tiger on the loose but to me it looks more cougar like. As my area is hilly and covered in dense forest, this cryptid cat has a lot of room to hide in. This certainly adds to the adrenaline of roaming through the bush.

A friend of mine lives only a mile or so from where the cat was photographed so maybe I’ll go visit him and we can go for a walk…. The Carpathian forest holds many, sometimes dangerous, secrets.

I love cryptids.

    How interesting! The photo does look fairly cougar-like, and hilly temperate forests make great cougar habitat. An escaped pet perhaps?

      I’m definitely thinking escaped as they’re not native to here. Possibly from one of the wandering circuses rather than a pet.
      Great to see you on here, Josh! Thanks for visiting.
