Apparently the Kent and Sussex courier have been reporting sightings of a Lynx in the area, described as a slender body, long curved tail and the shape and size of a black Labrador! This may very well be Rennie which would be good. The search coordinators are now in touch with the Sussex Big Cats society as they have cameras in the area and are making the aware of Rennie. Sam has also been In touch with the newspaper and the regional BBC so let's hope she gets some coverage!

Indeed! It may depend on the weather as only Piper likes the rain! Woody and Tate might ask to go back to Laurie's if we drag them out in anything too wet!  lol! lol!

Flipping nora that was a wild walk today! Gale force winds nearly blew us off our feet and at times the rain was horizontal.... we walked for 2 hours in very slippery, muddy conditions, put up loads more posters and gave out leaflets to anyone we encountered but alas no sighting of Rennie Sad 

I'm off leafleting up that way tomorrow morning if the weather is better and hopefully those, along with the posters and (hopeful) publicity, will gain more sightings of her. 

I think she's actually not having a bad time out there as the gorse and bracken is dense enough that she will have plenty of dry, fairly warm places to hide up and there's loads of food in the form of bunnies.

Another very recent sighting but she's not been caught yet.
More leaflets have been delivered and there have been several walks on the forest with volunteers handing out cards to everyone they meet with a photo of Rennie along with contact numbers. Good publicity in the local paper too so the word is getting out there for people to keep an eye out for her.
She is going to be a very difficult houndie to catch though...

Loads of people are walking the forest regularly looking for her and loads more are aware of her being out there so hopefully it won't be too long, but I really have no idea how they are going to catch her as she's covering such a huge area. She will be getting more feral now so doubt she will approach anyone even with a hound. No one is giving up though

How frustrating for everyone involved but wonderful that they aren't giving up on Rennie.  Sounds like they need some sort of trap crate with maybe raw meat in it when she is next sighted?

 She has been out for so long now. And no doubt learning survival skills daily.

As you say also becoming more feral. It looking more like that the only way to catch her
will be by trapping.

Poor girl if only we could talk to them an explain nothing bad is going to happen to them

Last sighting about 2 weeks ago Sad but loads of walks organised to spread the word and posters being placed in other areas nearby. 

Worrying as there are loads of adders on the forest which have just started waking up and sunning themselves Sad 

Hopefully she is just moving to another area in which people are not aware of her yet, but also with the longer daylight hours she is less likely to be moving around when people are around I expect.

I hope Rennie is alright - 2 weeks is a long time without a sighting.

So good of people to keep searching and working to find her.

Praying she is ok and will be caught soon as. Praying

There was a possible sighting of Rennie on Monday in the area she seems to be staying around. If it was her there are indications she may not be well as she moved too slowly when chased by a dog. Fingers crossed she is ok.

There has now been a reward offered for any info leading to finding her or getting her back....
