A HUGE “black panther” roaming the UK streets appears to have been caught on chilling doorbell cam footage.
Luke Hickman, 30, says he captured the video of a panther walking past his home in Warrington, Cheshire, at around 11pm on October 13.
The clip shows a black animal with a long, curved tail moving around behind a silver vehicle before walking out of sight.
Although only half of the animal can be seen, it is clearly bigger than an average house cat.
The dad-of-one says he has since put meat around his garden in the hope of capturing more footage of the suspected apex predator.
Luke said: "It was last Thursday at around 11 pm. I checked the app on my phone and it said that the doorbell had been trigged. It looked like a big cat walking off.

"There were reports of a sighting last Tuesday in Warrington. This was in Newton, which is about a ten-minute drive away. So this was two days later.
"I have been leaving little bits of food around, little bits of chicken, to try and get more footage. I've been trying chicken bits from the supermarket at the moment."
Luke's remarkable footage follows a possible panther sighting in Warrington last week, where a mum reportedly saw the predator "charge" at her moving vehicle.
Julie Murphy was driving home with her daughter Lois when she says she spotted the fearsome predator arcing towards her car.
