Humm, I only live about 20 miles away from Dorchester and seem to have missed this story! The image is very bury which is a classic example of how crap camera phones are. There doesn’t seem to be a reason why the student would lie or make up the story. Think Cryptoworld will have to visit Dorchester and investigate!

Terri Leigh Cox, 17, says that she saw something hunched over and bounding around on all fours from her bedroom window in Dorchester, Dorset, and took a photograph of it on her mobile phone. The teenager said that the park’s visitor, which she insisted was not a dog or cat, then ran up a tree and out of sight.
Shaun Bessant, her boyfriend, went out to investigate but found no sign of the “monkey–like” creature.
The park is about 10 miles from the Monkey World attraction in Wool. Miss Cox, who is studying health and social care at college, said the creature “looked about the size of a small gorilla.
