Nov 8, 2003 8:45 am US/Eastern


There have been two more sightings of an elusive large cat reportedly seen roaming in Northampton Township, Bucks County.

The latest sitings occurred around lunchtime on Friday. Two people called police to say they had seen a large odd looking creature on a ball field at Holland Elementary School. Northampton Township Police Sargent Steven Heath says the claims were taken seriously.

"We spoke to two witnesses who described what they had seen from a distance in the ball field while the children were outside for recess they were sent inside, police searched the area they never found an animal or evidence of the animal," he said.

School district officials decided not to let students walk home just to be on the safe side. Sargent Heath says police have received numerous reports of large cat sightings over the past several months, but they remain just reports.
