The only thing I have to say is that what really stinks that if it is a panther, which I believe it is, that it sucks that it's habitat that it was in naturally has been destroyed that they have to move.. I don't believe that these mountain lions were just naturally here. Sure, people getting these as pets had something to do with it. And you can't really trust everything that the government says.. I mean come on.

I've been hearing about black panthers in the Midwest and mid south (like Missouri and Kansas area) for a long time, but I have, yet, to find a single proof of them being real.  I do think there might be melanistic cougars, which would be rare, but not black panthers which wold actually be black jaguars in this part of the world.  Unless, it's an escaped jaguar or leopard, it's not a panther.

However, even if it is a house cat, that doesn't mean there aren't large cats there too.


Well said!

Who's to say it's not a panther? I'm told by everyone in my area, including the DNR we do not have any mountain lions around here. But one morning around 6:00 with the DST, I walk up my driveway with  Morgan, the dog, and saw on about75 yards from me in the edge of my field at the tree line. Morgan spotted him and off he went. One of the few times I've ever heard that dog bark as he ran. He normally just chases. I called the sheriff, who sent me to the animal control, who sent me to the DNR. I called them and wast told that's not what I saw. There are none around here. This idiot wanted me to get a paw cast from the cat so he could see it. I told him he was crazy as hell. He also let me know the cat was protected and I could not harm the cat. I told him I didn't have to concern myself with that, he just told me we didn't have any cougars around here. Then sightings started popping up all around here. Just goes to show.

   So who's to say it not a panther?hmm

It woke us up around midnight, after one of the young pigs. Dad turned out the hounds and treed it.

I live in South Georgia and have heard that scream alot when I was growing up. My sister and I were down at a creek on my Grandmother's property several years ago and saw three young ones. We left in a hurry before the mother showed up. So while I don't know about other parts of the south, there are some in our area.

They have been reported around here for some time, whatever that pic is.  It wasn't that long ago that govt. denied there were coyotes around here, either.

Huh? Guess that pack we saw the other night was a figment of my imagination?

I bet the house cat is embarresed by making all this fuss smile

Maybe there are black panthers there, but this isn't one of them in my opinion.

I agree with woodmort.  In order to utilize any scale in the picture, take a look at the longleaf pine (pinus palustris) growing at the edge of the woods line in the upper center of the photo.  That's a 1 year old longleaf with needles about 8 or 10 inches long.  That is the only definitive scale in the photo.  This appears to be nothing more than a large housecat.
