Glastonbury revellers are being warned there is a wild big cat on the loose at the festival site.

Around 200,000 revellers will head to the iconic location this week for five days of boozing, music and partying – with queues on the road already building, right.

But Reg Baker, part of the build crew, says a mystery big cat is prowling the area.

He says he was working there when he saw a huge black animal he believes was a puma running across a field.

The creature sprinted into a small area of woodland at the Somerset site known as the Glade. Big cats living in the surrounding countryside are common knowledge, he claimed.

Reg said: “I am part of the build crew at Glastonbury. I was walking around the site when I spotted a large black animal running free across the field.

“At first I thought it was a dog, but then I realised its running movement was different. From the shape, I’m pretty sure it was a puma.”

The animal is said to match the description of a mystery creature spotted in Glastonbury town in 2018. Reg added: “The next day, one of my colleagues pointed at a dark shape running up Pennard Hill opposite us and into the trees at the top.

“Talking with other people on site, I have found a few people who say they have seen big cats while working here over the years.

“They’re common knowledge among the long-term workers and generally harmless – either hiding or leaving when the crowds arrive.

“Glasto is so big, it’s possible a big cat could go undetected while trapped inside.” Members of the Puma Watch group believe the creature could be the so-called “Beast of Exmoor”, which is said to roam the moors of Exmoor in Devon and Somerset.

Last year, police in Devon and Cornwall were sent to investigate five separate “lion” sightings after terrified residents reported seeing beasts in the area.

And in 2006 a Devon farmer found a puma skull on land at Exmoor, the British Big Cats Society confirmed.
