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.

BSK,

I agree with all your points except:

No jaguar has ever been documented north of central Mexico.

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.
