GOVERNMENT WILDLIFE EXPERTS HAVE FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF THE SO CALLED "BEAST OFBODMIN" AFTER A 6 MONTH, 8000$ PROBE.THEY EXAMINED PHOTOS, FOOTPRINTS AND LIVESTOCK THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN ATTACKED BY THE WILD ANIMAL IN CORNWALL. BUT THEY SAID MOST OF THE PICTURES AND VIDEOS THOUGHT TO HAVE SHOWN A BIG CAT WERE ACTUALLY DOMESTIC CATS AND THE FOOT PRINTS BELONGED TO DOGS OR CATS.FARMERS HAVE REJECTED THE OFFICIAL REPORT WHICH SAYS THE SO CALLED "BOB" DOESNOT EXIST. FARMER JOHN GOODENOUGH,66, WHO HAS LOST 10 EWES AND 3 CALVES ONCOMMON MOOR, SAID THE PROBE WAS "A FARCE". HE HAS TREBLED HIS LABOUR FORCE TO PROTECT HIS STOCK, AND SAID OF THE BIGCATS: "WE ARE IN ONE HELL OF A POSITION NOW, BECASE THEY ARE BREEDING FAST."
