Saw a large cat cross the little creek at my buddies ranch...... body must have been three feet in length & her tail was long with a tuft at the end...... we will be setting up some game cams to get a pic of her.... AND, yes..... she was large and BLACK in color........ I watched her move from under the trees to the bright sunlight on the pasture and she was still dark in color.......

I will post any pics we can get of her.......

We know there is a large cat down around the main creek area... but this one was seen from the ranch house porch.... and yes.... we BOTH saw her.............

I'll be waiting for those pics.

I'm good with the 'big cat' thing. Don't know where your buddy's ranch is located, so it is quite possible you saw a 'cougar'. You lose me on the black/dark part though, unless you saw a dark jaguarundi.


Either cat will be most difficult to get pictures of. They just don't hang around one area long enough unless they have a den there for some reason (litter of kittens or trying to establish a home range).

You'll get a lot grief over any claims of seeing a 'black panther'. I won't contribute, but I am in that camp.

Hope you get some pics, would love to see them. Good luck Sir.

Flint.

Yes, would love to see.

However, as with most things they will never show up when you have the rifle/camera...just the way it works.

Lol well I'm not saying you didnt see a cat but pretty sure you didn't see a black cat, if no one has ever killed one or at least took a picture of a "black cat" there not out there. Melanism in North American cougars is just not something that happens in the wild. Kind of like winning the lottery, twice.

If you're sure it was black, you saw a dog or a house cat.
