Specimen of one of the last Wild Cats living in England.
Ashdown Forest was the last great wilderness in south-east England, and this specimen was probably one of the last wild cats to survive south of the Scottish border. The deforestation of Kent was largely the result of the huge appetite for wood of the shipbuilding industry.
Nowadays, true wild cats are a rare and declining species restricted to parts of Scotland.
