A British dog walker photographed a Yeti over the weekend… in Sussex. The creature, dubbed the 'British Bigfoot,' was first spotted by Caroline Toms’ border collie, Ash, who was startled by the ape-like creature while walking in woods.

"It all happened so fast,” she said. “Ash started acting a little bit bemused and barking. Then she quick as a flash shot off into the undergrowth - then I saw this big black thing flash out in front of me.

Toms continued: "I only had my camera out because I was taking pictures of Ash playing. She came running back quick-as-a-flash though. I don't know what it was, but when I had a closer look at the pictures, it certainly does look like Bigfoot to me."

Despite no scientific evidence ever corroborating the existence of Big Foot, Toms concluded it probably was a British version of the mythical North American creature.

"I think it could be Bigfoot, but it happened so fast I cannot be absolutely certain," she said. "It was just luck I had the camera out. It was so big and massive, I don't know if it could be anything else."

Toms: 'I think it could be Bigfoot'

A spokesman from the Angmering Park Estate told SWNS this is the first Bigfoot sighting, but as the park is very big they can’t be certain about what lives on the grounds. "We haven't had any reports of this before. I've never heard of it,” the spokesman said. “It's a massive estate but this is the first we have seen of any Bigfoot-type 'things.'"

However, when asked if the image could be a wild cat, a spokesperson from the British Big Cat society was less enthusiastic. "That is a bloke in a suit,” he said. “One hundred per cent.
