A friend of mine called me up this evening and said you got to come by and see this. I thought it was a big buck, he showed me and to my astonishment it was a black panther. He said he thought he saw him last week but didnt want to tell anybody as he knew nobody would believe it. I will get the pic and post it. Its in the Apison Area. What are the chances? Ive heard of mountain lions around but a black panther?

IF there is a legit picture of a black panther (which I have very serious doubts about) it's an exotic pet that got loose. "Panthers" (which very very rarely occur as melanistic in the wild) do not and have never lived in this area or even this part of the world. Cougers (which are a different species and never appear melanistic) were once native, but no longer exist in this area. So, in my opinion, your buddy is pulling your leg.

You're being scammed. There are no WILD black panthers in North America (they only exist in zoos and private collections). They are a Central and South American species. Mountain lions are never black.

LOL that is pretty comical. I grew up in central florida and spent many a years running walker and beagles in the Ocala national forest. Mostly on the big scrub 7 side near the bombing range. We would carry climbers in when we were setting up to run a block and wait for the drive to come through. I was very very lucky to see a few florida panthers over the years. They are one of the most beautiful and graceful animals i have ever witnessed. They blend in to the sand color very well, and i can assure you the sand is not BLACK.....

Maybe he had a trail cam on a voting booth and there were members of the Black Panther Party there to intimidate old, white people.

Until a few years ago the Missouri dept of wildlife said there was no mountain lions in Missouri until some guys rabbit hunting found a deer kill called them and they confirmed it! Since then a few more has been documented in Missouri I think I read where there all young males that are range shifting. But as far as them or black panthers in Tn it's never been proven! The Ms river seams to stop them was what I've read there has not been a confirmed sighting east of the river since the 1800s it would be a big deal if it was. There are indangered black panthers in Florida. Please post a pic then have your friend post one from same spot in daylight we might have to call up Alan P!!!

You couldn't be more wrong thicketmaster.

First, biologist knew that mountain lions had been working down the Missouri River drainage for decades, and had predicted they would eventually work their way into MO, which they did. Wandering mountain lions have also been documented into central IL. EVENTUALLY a few mountain lions will make it down the MO and MS River drainages to the OH and TN River drainages, which will bring them into western KY and even northwestern TN. As of yet, that hasn't happened, but it will, and not too far in the future.

Second, there are no black "panthers" in North America. We have mountain lions, not panthers. Black panthers (actually, melanistic jaguars), are native to Central and South America, No jaguars have been documented north of central Mexico.

Third, there has NEVER, EVER been a documented case of a black mountain lion. Mountain lions, including those in Florida, do not have genetics capable of producing a black phase (the do not have the capability for melanism, like deer and other species do). It is not in their genetic make-up. There are no black panthers in Florida, nor west of the MS River.

This has been an ongoing "war" on my chain of friend's Facebook page for a while now. My brother inlaw and I, are in the MINORITY by a long shot, by saying black panthers don't exist. It seems McMinn/Monroe county must be a black panther mecca or den spot, because everybody around here has apparently seen one or two in their life time. Those things must be around every other tree for as many people to have seen them. Not only that, but ain't it crazy that with all the people out there with cell phone cameras, and trail cams in the woods...that not a single picture has been taken of one? It simply amazes me of how people can get so defensive towards believing something that has no historical or scientific proof of existing.

I'm sure some psychologists have made careers studying this phenomenon, but I'll never understand it either. However, apparently, humans need "monsters" in their lives. That's what fuels stories of Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, and even UFOs and "Little Green Men." Anthropologists have noted that virtually every culture, as far back as they have existed, and in nearly all parts of the world, have "dragon" myths and iconography, even though no living creature could have been used as the model for dragons. It has been speculated that perhaps dinosaur remains were the fuel for this fire throughout human existence. But the "need" for monsters appears to be universal in the human species, and attempting to shine the light of truth on these myths elicits a very angry response from those who want monsters in their lives.

My mistake WMAn. I meant to type black jaguars, not just jaguars.

I know of confirmed jaguars in the Big Bend region of TX as well.

Several years ago I was coming from Cleveland Tennessee to Dayton on highway 60. As I crossed the Tennessee river near Dayton A Black Cat jumped into the road about 100 yards in front of me. His body was about 3.5 feet long he stood about 2 feet tall and his tail was about 4 feet long and curled upward. He ran across the highway and was gone. I said it was a panther that was what it looked like to me. My father-in- law cut timber for years in the east Tennessee area 100 years ago and he told me many times about seeing large long tail cats both black and brown.

Bsk with 62,000 post you are probably right u know it all!


I have a feeling you are trying to be a smart @ss but yes bsk is very intelligent about his wildlife
When I first joined I think I called him an armchair biologist \:D But after reading his post and him answering any questions I or anyone else had I know he is the real deal.

I don't think BSK has a degree in Biology, but I agree he is very knowledgable about the Biology of Whitetail deer!
He should write a book about deer and deer hunting accidents \:D

I knew this pic would make it here... hilarity of the situation is that I was doing a quick google on "South Africa Panther Trail Cam" and TNdeer was my 2nd result.

...just when I was going to have a little fun with that pic, too!

(no, wasn't going to post it as legit... was going to do a "...so you can laughingly tell your buddy that leans his cell phone over with an incredulous "check THIS out!" the truth about the photo.

I have heard these dumb stories for years. There are no melanistic leopards in Tennessee. There are no black mountain lions either. There are, however, lots and lots of black domestic and feral cats. As in house cats. I have seen people try to pass off so many trail camera pictures from elsewhere it's getting old.

Show me a picture of something truly rare here in Tennessee and I'll be impressed. Let's start with a whooping crane or a bog turtle.

Oh, and Sasquatch is a myth.

OH! Say it ain't SO?! LOL

Trust me, I know. I get notifications on quite a few forums anytime someone posts a story or a pic. Tis one of my favorite hobbies!

I'm still waiting for the Bigfoot DNA/corpse. It's a myth until then. We did have an African Servile running around Columbia a few years ago. I'm afraid that escaped pet is as close as we'll ever come to a black panther.

I'm sure some psychologists have made careers studying this phenomenon, but I'll never understand it either. However, apparently, humans need "monsters" in their lives. That's what fuels stories of Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, and even UFOs and "Little Green Men." Anthropologists have noted that virtually every culture, as far back as they have existed, and in nearly all parts of the world, have "dragon" myths and iconography, even though no living creature could have been used as the model for dragons. It has been speculated that perhaps dinosaur remains were the fuel for this fire throughout human existence. But the "need" for monsters appears to be universal in the human species, and attempting to shine the light of truth on these myths elicits a very angry response from those who want monsters in their lives.


Just an attempt to explain the unexplainable. I don't doubt people believe they see things like Bigfoots and Big Cats. However what we think we see is not always reality. Lighting, aspect, perceived distance versus actual distance, lots of things can make things appear differently than they really are.
