I've come across many crazy *** house cats. I Don't think I would want to mess with a 30-40 pounder.

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.
He was drunk

Didnt they have footage of a panther on the series North America? Could be wrong, just remember a big cat that they said took forever to get in camera.

Probably wasnt a fox if you got to watch it for 30 minutes. They are very elusive and if they see or smell you they will be gone, just like a deer, bobcat or coyote. I would guess it was a dog, but I wasnt there.

Not saying I am a expert but years ago I saw a black cat slip through the woods silently and fast. It looked to be 5 or 6 foot long with tail. The tail was just as long as body! I say there are and always have been panthers in louisiana but no one says anything because all the critics try and tell them they did not see what they did see. I have been in the woods hunting and fishing for 30 years and know my game with pretty good accuracy.

Promise you it was not a dog...I agree with you on the elusive part. I don't think it saw me,there was nobody else out there to spook it. I have watched the way they move while deer hunting,this one acted the same way.

There are cougars in Louisiana. 100%. .000001 % chance one could ever be black. Every time people see a " black one " it's right at dark or early in the am. It's just mind tricks and we think we saw a black cat.

Lived in Carly's all my life. Have heard of sightings but have never seen one. Have seen a pair of cougars one morning on my way duck hunting. Sitting right in the middle of the road when I turned the corner by my house. Needless to say, they cleared the ditch and was gone in one leap. Only time I've seen them. I suspect all the black panthers are now in Florida tracking Zimmerman lol.

Cougar sightings are taken halfway seriously until the person says it was a black one

Cougars do exist here, but there is zero evidence of a breeding population.
