An acquaintance came by our table at breakfast and told about seeing a recent game camera picture of ...a black panther! grin
Of course, he didn't know the man personally... but he saw the picture. hammer

This prompted another friend at the table to say he has seen two panthers in his lifetime...one of them black. juggle

A third friend agreed there are black panthers and then proceeded to tell a story about how TPWD released 32 mountain lions from a private preserve along the Lampasas River some years ago... confused2

A fourth friend said he had seen a mountain lion... but it was NOT black.

The fifth friend did not say anything. I said there has never been any proof of a black mountain lion but that the subject does generate some good discussions on the THF clap

Then due to our short attention spans we moved on to other topics. walking

I know a guy that has heard them. He swears they were black even though he didn't see them. I guess they just sound different than the tan ones. Lol

well, for me, I'd say that depends, if he's stalking me yes, I never want to see one but on the other hand if I'm in my blind hunting and get a chance to shoot one then I'd love to see one!

Considering the simple fact that in all history, not one single black panther has ever been killed, or found dead by anybody, makes me think it's the same thing as bigfoot.

Lots of people seeing what they want to see, others just making it up for attention, but it really doesn't exist.

Well I was going to share a pic of the huge one I killed out the window of my geo that Brooke down halfway to south tx. It was 12 days before a bus of Dallas cowboy cheerleaders stoped and picked me up. But sounds like y'all don't believe in blk. Panther!

A friend of mine swears he saw one last year near Childress.

But I did read something about panthers recently. J. Frank Dobie was a writer who captured a lot of stories from old Texas. In his book he says panthers are just mountain lions. So there is something semi-official documented from pioneer days.

In my research this is all I could find: A black panther is the melanistic color variant of any big cat species. Black panthers in Asia and Africa are leopards, and those in the Americas are black jaguars.
It is funny that if you look at the mascot for the Carolina Panthers The logo is black. Maybe helps to propitiate the belief.
