In my neck of the woods (Deep East Texas, Pineywoods) they aren't seen as much as they are supposedly 'heard'.

Screaming in the night!

The sad part is that most of these are farmers and ranchers. You would think they would know the sound of Gray Fox calling at night, but apparently not.

In lieu of that (not being able to identify the various night sounds), wouldn't you think simple logic would come into play?

Is there really a Mountain Lion (or Black Panther) living on your place night after night and screaming all the time! What are the odds of that.

No.....this is a deliberate decision to keep alive old myths and wive's tales. Don't understand what folks get out of that.....but it is what it is.

Secondly, black jaguars are only about 6% of the population of jaguars so where are all the spotted ones we would be seeing in Texas if people keep seeing black ones, especially in East Texas! There are black leopards in Asia and perhaps Africa but those are not native to our hemisphere. I've heard it all...circus train wrecks, drug smugglers escaped pets, canned hunt escapees, government releasing them to control hogs HAHA, etc. Where are the clear pictures or game camera pictures or road kill. Believers on that site constantly try to pass off pictures that are easily backtracked on the internet and were taken in India or somewhere like that.


Those people also belong to the Bigfoot websites no doubt.

I've been hunting in Texas since the late 80's and have yet to hunt an area where some landowner or hunter didn't report having seen a panther.

Look up Joe Rogan black panther. I'm not going to post the link. It has enough profanity that I would need to ban myself for 2 weeks. The comments are as funny as the video.

The number of responders claiming to have seen black panthers, some multiple times, is just amazing. ID10Ts.

Rogan had no idea what he is talking about. I like how he has a video from his security cameras at night, but doesn't show the video. Imagine that.
