A large black cat (black, not gray, although could have been VERY dark
gray, hard to tell). Cat was at least as big as a full grown Rottweiler,
if not around 15lbs heavier. It was sitting atop a little mound of
dirt when we walked up on it. It growled at us, but made no attempt
to attack us. We didn't hang around too long either way.
Activities of Witness:
Friend and I had been 4 wheeling the previous day. I had dropped
a pillow I use to sit on the 4 wheeler, so we went back to look for it
the following afternoon. The mountain can be gotten up 1/2 way by
4 wheeler, but after that there are steep hills followed by patches of
flat ground, so we were walking. We topped a hill and came to a flat
piece of land, and this is where we seen the cat. We then ran like
hell back to the ATV and left.
Description of Creature:
2 other friends who live at the foot of this mountain told me in 2000 that
they had also seen a black panther on a couple of occasions while hunting/hiking.
This is a VERY rural area, so we never thought anything about it, just
the usual wildlife. Although we were truly impressed by the cat's
size, bobcats are common in the area, but they look like dwarves
when compared to the black cat we saw.

contact the witness added to this report.
By the way, I read some other reports about big, "hairy" type cats.
This cat I seen was not "hairy" exactly, it was really sleek looking.
