Walkers warned over reports of 'predatory animal' in Patching
Dog walkers have been told to keep their dogs on a lead following reports of 'mutilated livestock' in the Patching area.
A 'safety warning' which appeared on a path in the Angmering Park Estate said there had been reports of 'mutilated livestock and deer' in the area.
The sign speculates that the incidents could be the work of a 'large cat' or another 'predatory animal'.
It reads: "There has been reports of mutilated livestock and deer in the area. As a precaution, please keep to open ground and have your dogs on a lead.
"Please report any sightings of anything unusual there may [be] a large cat or predatory animal in the area."
