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.

My sister lives close to Apison and teaches there. She thought it was funny.

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.
