Default Black Panther (The Animal) spotted in Piedmont

So, apparently there are some panthers in the state. I'm on my phone so I'll post the links in a second, but the links I post are just one. Someone with a deer camera near North Greenville caught one the other day. The DNR guy told the lady that the animal in these pics is a coyote.

I'm interested to see this. There's technically no such thing as a black panther. At least none have ever been documented.

Technically speaking, black panthers are in the Panthera genus. They are considered black jaguars in the Americas. In North America, they are called "black cougars", but there is no such thing as a black cougar that has ever been documented. Unconfirmed sightings...that is about all.

There are two animals that are called black panthers in N. America, which are probably either an ocelot or a margay

I said back in late 2008 that it was only matter of time before we would start seeing black panthers in sc. It is why I have so many guns. I need to protect my daughters

DNR says that it is a house cat that has grown to an exceptionally but not uncommon large size.

Obvious reference to ACphilsons snake.

That's awesome. You can see the melanism very clearly.

From wiki:

There are no authenticated cases of truly melanistic cougars (pumas). Melanistic cougars have never been photographed or shot in the wild and none has ever been bred. Unconfirmed sightings, known as the "North American black panther", are currently attributed to errors in species identification by non-experts, and by the memetic exaggeration of size. Black panthers in the American Southeast feature prominently in Choctaw folklore where, along with the owl, they are often thought to symbolize Death.
