Panther on the loose clinging to a park bench turned out to be a stuffed toy

Police called to a park after receiving reports of a ‘panther’ on the loose discovered it was a soft toy left on a bench.

Officers were notified about a ‘apex predator’ roaming the area in Steyning, Horsham, West Sussex. They raced to the park and saw what appeared to be a creature the size of a panther.

But it turned out to be a stuffed toy that was left on a park bench. Sussex Police said: ‘Reports of a large apex predator in the Steyning area turned out to be true.

‘It may be a stuffed toy, but the attending officers didn’t necessarily know that at first.’
