Bodmin beasts no big deal:MAFF

BIG cats are not a serious threat to livestock on Bodmin Moor, an ADAS investigation has found.

The inquiry, ordered by junior farm minister Angela Browning in January, found no evidence of big cat involvement in four suspicious livestock deaths.

Mrs Browning said the ministry will be taking no further action and any further reports of livestock kills notified to MAFF will investigated in the normal way.
