The 'beast' of Blue Bell Hill is back...
The so-called 'beast' of Blue Bell Hill has existed in one for or other since the 1500s when a mysterious creature was spotted near Boxley and Burham. On August 5th 2009 a sheep was killed not far from Blue Bell Hill at a farm which had never, in 40 years, suffered a sheep loss. In the area two piles of fresh excrement were discovered next to the contents of the sheeps gut (digested grass) and a few yards away the eaten, and cleanly rasped remains of a sheep.
Here is one of several photo's taken at the time:
