That bottom pic is a Jag. 2nd largest cat next to tiger. 250lbs. Also the only big cat that can be black and even then it's rare. MT Lions its literally 1 in a few million chance one could be black. The majority of black cat sighting are house cats that look big because of the back ground and other things making it look better.

Dude that used to work for my dad swears he saw one(black panther) in my woods in St Francisville while squirrel hunting about 20 years ago. And this dude's nickname is "Gator Man". He would put Swamp People boys to shame. Dude will go camp in the middle of the swamp in a tent by himself for a week or two and just live off the land. Kind of hard not to believe him, you never know. If it was anyone else i would definitely call BS. I have seen some big cat tracks on my prop before.

New species and sub species are discovered all the time. Y'all hear about the new bass in Florida? There have been many times when a "mythological" creature or color variation was known by "unconfirmed" observations for decades before finally being confirmed by the scientific authorities of the day.

Proving negatives is almost impossible in science. Even if a specific sighting has a more reasonable explanation, that does not prove there is no black panther, just that a specific instance is unconvincing.

I have no idea if this sighting is real or not. I'd be more impressed if a qualified scientist made a full investigation such as photographing and casting the prints before dismissing the claim out of hand. The size and weight of an animal can be accurately estimated from a good print. The photograph leaves open the question of scale.

No offense, but I dunno how much I would buy into something a guy whos name is gator man and who lives in the woods by himself for weeks at a time says.

Yeah I talked to the biologist that investigated it. said they figure its a 30-40lb house cat. It's no panther but still pretty big for a pet cat. Thing must be eating some high protein food.
