More sightings of Chase 'wolf'

Feb 4 2010 Kevin Edge

Sighting of a wolf-like creature over Cannock Chase have continued to flood in, with eyewitnesses claiming to have seen the fabled beast near to Huntington woodland.

Readers say they have spied a creature they believed to be a wolf near woodland off the Stafford Road.

The sightings follow a raft of eyewitness reports claiming to have seen the creature in undergrowth near Pottal Pool.

“I was walking my dog near to Broadhurst Green and I believe I saw something that could be described as a wolf,” resident Mark Sutton said.

“It was not a panther and it was too large to be a dog. It was walking through the bushes without a care in the world.

“It was about 50 metres away from us, but it didn’t seem fussed.

“It disappeared back into the Chase. I’m sure a lot of other people would have seen it. It wasn’t trying to stay hidden.”

Over the past 20 years, many people have claimed to have seen a big cat prowling Cannock Chase, fuelling speculation a panther roams the area.

But the recent sightings seem to suggest the fabled Chase Panther could belong to the wolf-family.

Last week resident Peter Derbyshire also said he saw a wolf-like creature while driving near Pottal Pool.

“I was driving through the trees in the direction of Stafford when I saw something dark moving amongst the bushes on the right hand side of the car,” he said.

“I slowed down to get a better look. It was probably about 80 metres away. It was aware I had slowed down, but did not seem too fussed. It disappeared into the bushes and I lost sight of it.

“It was definitely not a cat, it had more of a dog’s characteristics. It had a long nose and sharp, pointy ears.”
