So are there big cats in England?

So are there big cats in England?
There is a mountain lion near my property, I've heard it's cries and growls, I've had my dogs attacked by it with obvious scratch marks and bites. It's well known they're in the area. But I've never seen it, never caught a picture.
How likely is it that a small population could survive in the Isles?

      The first dog it did kill. I think it snuck up on it while it was sleeping. The other two times I had gotten more dogs that were younger and more alert, so I think I just had enough of them the next time to where they could fight it off.

        How are you coping? I'd be furious and upset.

    No.

    Almost impossible without being seen regularly, especially since everyone now has a camera phone on them at all times.
    You can't just have one or five mountain lions; for them to endure for a long time in a new environment you have to have a breeding population of dozens to many dozens. People would see them all the time and they would be destroying very large numbers of livestock. Farmers would be fricking screaming.
    Same with the Loch Ness monster and any other supposed cryptid.

      The Loch Ness monster doesn't eat livestock it eats fish.

    Isn't there a type of wild cat in Ireland? It's on the verge of extinction, and basically looks like a normal housecat. But it's there somewhere. Either Ireland or Scotland.
    Does Scotland also have Lynx? I can't remember.

      You're thinking of the Scottish wildcat. They look pretty similar to housecats and there has been some hybridisation going on. There aren't any in Ireland as far as I'm aware.

      Lynx are extinct in the UK but recently government said they were going to discuss the possibility or reintroducing them in Scotland

    Could survive maybe in Scotland. But not in England. Not sure about Ireland.
    Also, your dog was not attacked by a mountain lion or it would be dead. If it came away with just scratched, it was probably a bobcat.

      It was a mountain lion. It killed one of my dogs and took a chunk out of another the size of a plate. I have several larger dogs, so it probably felt overwhelmed and took off.

        Then yes, that's definitely one.
        It will likely return for another eventually.

          It did twice. But I still never so much as caught a glimpse of it. Cats are sneaky bastards.

    You wouldn't happen to live by Exmoor by any chance, would you?

      No sir, America. I should've specified. I'm just making the point that even here, where there are mountain lions and jaguars in plenty, it's still hard to spot one.
