I grew up in central Fla, and my brother and sister, and I saw a black panther from about 220 - 250 feet away. We all stopped, the panther stopped, and we just looked at each other for a few seconds, then the panther was like, whatever, and disappeared into the brush. It was around 9 feet or so, counting the tail I would guess. Other people had spotted it too. Pretty neat to see something some people didn't even believe exist.

That's pretty funny since that's were I'm at for the moment. It is really cool to see something you wouldn't normally see outside a zoo just out walking around. :)

Ok, I was going to write about black dogs next, but it isn't a local story. I've heard two different stories behind them. One is the old trucker story about seeing them when you've been awake too long. The other I can't remember where I heard it first, but it basically says that when you see a black dog on the road at night you're about to die. I think the stories are the same, but I honestly can't remember much more about either of them.

I have seen a black panther one time in central Mississippi, 80 miles from Alabama. Had to be fall of 1998 it walked out of the woods next to the Tallahatchie river, drank some water then went back the way it came.

I have also been an avid hunter since I was 6 and black bears are something I have always looked for , not to kill. I just know there are some here and I have never seen any in the wild.

I have found bear tracks near creek beds, still no bears. I know a few people that say they have and I have heard a lot of tall tales from other hunters about many things here and there. Nothing I would think worthy of retelling.

Fun thread, look forward to reading more.

The crybaby bridge thing is a great urban legend. ...however there is an alternative theory ... most of the backstory of anyplace called crybaby bridge can be proven to be total b.s.  ...however if you are inclined to believe in such things the indian legend of " water babys " does come to mind...of course my spook knowledge is limited. .I am just a simple werewolf hunter. ..
