A HUNT launched by Spanish police to track a ‘dangerous black panther’ has ended in an anticlimax after it was revealed it is most likely ‘just a shaggy black dog’. 

Frightened people in Jadraque Guadalajara called in the Guardia Civil last week after fearing a massive beast was on the loose.

Police responded after various sightings and were sent out in numbers to track down the big cat.

But after several days police filmed what they thought could be the beast.

It was accompanied by a smaller animal, most likely another dog, and the pair were recorded frolicking about together.

Despite the new footage, some locals still believe the ‘panther’ is on the loose.
