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?

Happened to see this topic and thought I'd reply to it. I also live in rural eastern Louisiana, with our property bordering the Tensas wildlife refuge. The game wardens and such always deny the existance of such as a 'panther', yet many people have seen them. As a matter of fact, my grown son saw 3, two adults and a half grown young one, this evening. They were crossing the road not long after dusk. So I have to say that yes they do exist, and I find it amusing as to what the reports and statistics say about it. Also the local wardens claim how very, very few that the black bear are in number ...

Officially, the last Louisiana panther, or catamount, or cougar, or puma, was shot to death in November 1966 near Keithville.Indeed, there are only 30 to 50 panthers left at this hour in 2005, clinging to a precarious existence in the Florida Everglades. Only a few panthers survived in the South past 1900.A recent USA Today article said the panther or mountain lion population was growing in ...

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. I live about 30mins north of lake charles in south west louisiana. 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 ...

In my 30 years in Shreveport, Louisiana area, and hunting all over Louisiana, I've had 2 personal encounters with black panthers (we call them). My Dad, his brother, and his business partner used to track a pack of them (2 adults, 2 kitties) on our hunting lease off of Red Bluff Rd, Gloster, Louisiana. In fact, here's a couple of stories. My Dad was bow hunting for deer, and he sees a big black cat (about 5-6 feet long, 2-3 feet tall) walking down the ATV road. Dad's brother was driving down this same road and stopped about 50 feet behind the cat. He saw the cat jump into the woods. From my Da...
