You have to be pretty cruel to kill big cats or any animal! But I don't doubt that maybe some of the larger kitties come by every now and then. Um where they actually "ghost cats?" Or did I read it wrong?

A couple of months ago I saw video of a panther caught on video walking on a wooden boardwalk in the Everglades. I don't think many of these animals really went extinct in the south. I think they realized they needed to be more secluded to survive.

In august of 2011 i was at my new neighbors house across the road telling her that she need to keep an eye out when her kids were outside playing because i had seen a cougar and black panthers behind my house in the woods. 2 weeks later she came to my house screaming because a large tan cat had come into her back yard and grabbed her miniature yorkshire terrier and ran off into the woods. we called the game warrdens, they did a thourough search around the house and woods and never found the big cat. Game officials told us tha...
