I have seen a panther twice behind my house and a couple years back I have
heard him growl at night... The first time I saw the panther I was
walking down to our pond and picking trash from our recent storm when in
the corner of my eye I saw a huge light brownish cat sprawled out over
a oak that had fallen down... I tried to walk as close as I could to the
cat to get a better image of it but it hopped up and ran into the woods...
We have three cats at our house and I know what the normal size is for
a cat it was way bigger and It could not be a bobcat because it had long
tail... The second time I saw the large cat was when I was taken my Baby
Sister to go swimming... Our pool had a deck wrapped around it that gave
a view to our pond... I was about to get in the pool when I saw a large
brownish creature in the corner of my eye... It was the cat again and I
quickly as I could ran with my baby sister to the house to get a camera
and get another person so I could have more witnesses that have seen the
big cat... By the time I had made it back the cat was darting off into
the woods... That moment I knew for a 100% fact that cat was no ordinary
house cat... It was way to big. In fact it was about the size of a full-grown
lab or pit bull...
of Witness: N/A
of Creature: A large cat...
Notes: One of my neighbors
said he saw it out on our land way before it was developed.
