Large black or very dark colored cat like creature. About the size
of a grown Pit Bull dog
of Witness: N/A
of Creature: N/A
Other Notes: 08/11/08, I had to take my car in for work at a dealership in Muscle Shoals Alabama. While there I met a retired couple from Pennsylvania who now live in a lake house on lake Lewis Smith in Alabama. Their property is deep in the Talladega National Forest surrounded by wilderness.
talking to them I asked if they had seen any unusual wildlife since moving
there. They said that on several occasions they had seen a large
black cat like creature that they could not identify. It was as big
as a full grown pit bull and was very dark to black in color. It
did not have any tufts on its ears and they never heard it make any noise.
The husband was very sure it was not a dog or coyote because they had seen
its prints in soft sand and the prints did not have any claw marks.
They intend to try and get pictures of either the animal or the paw prints
when they can.
(Informational or Encounter History in the General Area) Notes:
Seen on more than one occasion.
