With the sightings of a Big Cat in Essex hitting the headlines, married persons dating website Illicit Encounters has offered up its own explanation of the large cat sighting, claiming that it may have actually been a Cougar.

A quick search of the website reveals that it has over 1000 “Cougars” registered in the Essex area alone.

Illicit Encounters spokesperson Mike Taylor said “Whilst the Essex lion will most likely turn out to be just a domestic cat, Illicit Encounters offers an online environment for married people who find their domestic lives are missing the spark and excitement.”

You also won't need two police helicopters, zoo experts and armed police to find yourself a cougar on the site and it will be considerably cheaper than the rumoured £25,000 cost of the Essex Lion hunt. is the largest married persons dating website in the UK with 700,000 members, which is 4% of the married population.
