That is a neat photo! It looks like a black jaguar, though I don't know how one would get as far Norh as NC. When & where ( what part of NC ), was it taken if you don't mind me asking?

Hi! Northern NC, earlier this month. Recently a border camera in Texas caught an image of a jaguar on the Mexican border, but I think this may be a native species. My husband's grandfather was one of the first to settle Panther, WV- he said he and his father killed 2 in the late 20s. My own grandfather saw one in Paint Creek in the late 30s. Pretty wild!

We live in the Cross Lanes/Nitro West Virginia area. When we first moved on a freshly cut out field below the old landfill in 2001 we heard a screaming cat like nothing I ever heard. Each spring a wild cat comes down close to the edge of the woods. Our beagle tucks his tail for days and won't eat when it comes close to the house. I and my husband saw it passing through the deep woods one day. It was far larger than a normal black house cat and had a long tail. We were shocked at it's size, and then again one spring it was on a log in the woods up on the hill across from our house. I would be tempted to say "Oh it was just a huge cat, but the screaming tells me otherwise. If you want to research it, search the encircled Sycamore landfill on the Cross Lanes side of the mountain.

I need to say what I saw about 4 years ago I use to come to Wv.about 3 times a year for A month at A time, I would go four wheeling every morning about 9:00ish am and around 3-4pm and I stopped my four wheeler near the edge of A pretty good size cliff one evening out of the corner of my eye I caught A good look at this huge cat looking which jumped up and took off across this ridge above me,I at first thought it might be A Bear but again it did not run like a Bear it had a feline kind of run,I mention this to my nephew who lives on the old homeplace now ,I think he mention this to D.N.R.person from what I was told as feedback I don't think they believed the story I will leave this as is.I have saw Panther before and I know what one looks like when I see one.right there in pineville Wv.on Bearhole area
