Is the 'Gloucestershire Growler' on the loose?


Scientists at the University of Warwick have analysed the carcass of a deer found in the National Trust-owned Woodchester Park near Stroud in Gloucestershire to see if they can find any traces of feline DNA.

Fears were raised after the dead deer was found with wounds which some thought could have been caused by a large predator.

West of England Correspondent Jon Kay has been to Woodchester to investigate.
