I saw this morning about 8:30am when I let my dog out... A big black kitty. It was the size of MY dog who is about 60lbs... And it was at the end of the yard in the woods. It walked through a clearing and my puppy instantly put her hackles up and stated. I went down where I saw it and tried to see it again... But I couldn't. And no paw prints.

Both my wife and I have seen a large black cat. The cat is about 30 inchs tall, at the shoulders, and has a tail nearly as long as its body. I estimate the cat to weight 40 to 50 lbs. Several people in the Emory, Tx. area have seen this cat. It does not bother livestock or domestic pets so the people are not concerned. The locals consider it a privelege to see this amazing animal

I just woke up and through my bathroom window I say a very large and tall black cat in my neighbors yard, it was heading towards the woods slowly like it was tracking. I had to google what it was and now I'm here, but still don't have a specific name.

Was it skinny looking? Did it have a very long tail?

Hi there,
I'm new to this site but I was wondering if anyone has sighted large wild cats over the years. I've, myself, sighted one years ago in a neighbors yard while waiting for a delivery truck early morning (7AM). If I'm correct, the year was 2000 and the cat was a shiny black with a long tall and it seemed to walk across their backyard in a "crouching" position as if it was stalking. I seriously wouldn't be surprised if they're were large cats in the area because I'm sure there are plenty of deer for a food source, rural areas( Great Cedar Swamp . Plus a water source for them to drink out of. But if anyone has has any sightings, experiences and vocalizations, please, post them. Thanks :)
Saw a large cat in town outside of Worcester Ma. Sitting in the backyard near a pond. We have a picture from the distance, sits and looks like a cat but the size was that of a dog or bigger. Did not look like a fisher cat and did not even move when we sounded the car horn to scare it off. Walked with its head down and hind legs up.

The two black "cats" that I saw, about five miles east of Ottumwa, Iowa; were not merely "big cats", these were full black panthers, much bigger than a puma!!!At a place called Garrison Rock, along the Des Moines river. They followed me for miles, stalking me up on the cliffs. I was on a trail below the cliffs. For miles, they stalked me, waiting for the perfect chance to pounce.Then I saw them about twenty feet above me as I rounded a corner. They had got ahead of me, I started to panic, but a voice told be, fear not, but know this, what you have seen, will not be believed, but you know the truth, which shall set you free. The Voice of the Almighty told me. Walk around this corner, out of their sight, and run for your life. That I did. I know now, what is out there. I also saw out there, near horsethief cave, two wolves. Not coyotes, not foxes, wolves!!! At horsethief cave , me and my brother saw what looked like Bigfoot tracks!!!
