A Guardia Civil, Seprona patrol from Algerciras is trying to track down a "feline of large dimensions," or if you prefer, a sod-off moggy.
The animal was spotted in the Benharás area within the municipality of Los Barrios. According to locals, a very large cat had been spotted several times.
So far, Seprona hasn’t come across it and therefore are not able to confirm what it is but in the meantime social media is buzzing with it, with one user providing a video of the white beastie in the distance next to a tree line.
The Mayor of Los Barrios, Miguel Alconchel, confirms that the video is authentic and that several locals had reported its existence to the Guardia Civil.
The police have not ruled out that the animal is not a large domestic cat but an exotic feline, as some people like to acquire such animals illegally.
