A gentleman who lives in Marshall County, AL which is just over the line out west I-20 caught a photo last night on his hunting camera he had set out about 1/4 mile from his house to watch for deer activity. Last night, he caught the distinct photograph of a mountain lion/panther. I saw the photo and there is no mistaking. It is not a bobcat or dog or anything else but a panther. I knew that some which Florida had release had gone up into south Alabama but I thought they had rounded all those up.

Also, a friend who pastors a church over near Albertville in AL also builds houses and he saw one cross the 431.

Have any been sited here in the mountains? I know the wildlife folks in AL claim there are none in Alabama, which there is proof now there is, but I'm wondering if there are some here too.

Has anyone heard of anyone seeing any?

Have you visited our wildlife sanctuary here in Gilmer County? Yes, they are here.

I though all these stories that old timers told about "painters" were a bunch of bull. That is until about 4 years ago. I was standing outside my home in Ellijay when I got that hair stand up on the back of your neck feeling. I turned to find a mountain lion, panther, whatever you want to call it in the woods about 25 yards away. No mistaking it for a bobcat. While the DNR does not believe my story, there was no mistaking what I saw. Scared the crap out of me!

I have a home at carters lake and I was on my front porch smoking a cigarette one night when a very,very large cat,no bobcat,it stood tall had a big long tail walked right along the side of my porch.I was paralized with fear as it walked slowly up to the road and into the woods.Being from Fla I have seen Fla panthers and this is exactly what it looked like.The next night there was a fawn laying at the bottom of the porch steps that had been completely gutted and not a drop of blood on it.Being afraid to dispose of it in the dark we left it there till morning.By morning it was completly gone!When I told neighbors and locals they said wildlife commissioner would tell me that I was wrong that they do not exist in gilmer county.All I know is I know what I saw and it was large cat,panther,mountain lion or whatever!!

While sitting behind my house in Mt.meigs Alabama looking out over my neighbors pond I heard what I thought was a small deer. When I turned to see what it was I couldn't believe what I saw. A small black cat came creeping through the woods. This cat was so black it was purple looking. HAD to be a panther. I know house cats and this wasn't one for sure. Defined muscle and long bodied liked I have never seen. This cat was young and I hope momma isn't around.

November 6, or Election Night, I was sitting outside late in the freezing cold wrapped in a quilt with a *gun to my head.
In the not too far distance, extremely not too far distance, I listened for about 10 minutes to unhuman-type screams.
I just sat there listening, knowing what I was hearing was a cat or cats. Not regular cats either.
So this is my contribution to the Panther stories. It or they had to be the Panther. Normally I would have been terrified, but you know, the election thingy. Overroad all.

People need to think including myself, Topix was on the news again last week where some folk thought it funny to single this person out and call him a perv, The "perv" won the lawsuit. Its silly to get that upset on a stupid forum, I am done with topix since the elections over but happened to see some post I felt needed addressing.

We have gotten under that rabbit skin huh? May I ask how we freak you out as you say. Is it beause we have the ability to read you like a book? Our knowledge of the system? Our ability to baffle you? I am just curious.We are not harmful . I am wondering if maybe you have a touch of schizo?I think you are safe.. Do we freak you out because we stand together and that is something you don't have? Or you like to have a toddy or 2 and study us. Love to know just out of curiosity as to why you find us so freaky. WE are just a few guys who would help you fix a flat, work on your car,cut a tree out of your driveway we are neighborly folks.Hell you may even know at least 1 of us. Who knows we might just be the neighbor you pissed off??? Please respond a smy curiosity is kiling me..Oh yeah and no slander-let's be friends on the slander part as I realy am not an idiot Really!!!Quote-Waylon Jennings-- I'm just a good ole boy never meaning no harm..
