Default Black Panther on Trail cam!

Here are 3 pics off my camera here in brazoria county. First pic, then a black panther in the next, and then one with it gone again.

Seriously can someone lighten that shot up to see what that is moving across the camera? Its got a long tail and is short to the ground but the onl;y thing I can seriously think it might be here is a dog.

I would be more worried about the quality of the night pictures your camera takes.

Nope, I bought a bushnell trophy cam and the night pictures suck on it and it was quite a bit more than $68.

And because it is an unrecognizable blob then it has to be a black panther? Not sure what you were drinking but you have to share.

There were several folks claiming to have seen a black cat the size of a mountain lion around the Sienna Plantation in Brazoria county a few years back. One was a friend of mine in there deer hunting. He called me and said had seen it twice but was not sure if he could shoot it. Of course he never saw it again.

Fishndude said he saw a deer too. Here is what a deer on cam looks like in the exact same spot. I also think that this may have been an extremelly foggy morning comparing this shot to other pics at night.

I felt a chill go up my spine when I first looked at that pic. There's definitely something there, and it ain't no deer. I think it is a black panther. Shine a black light on it & see what happens.

Did anyone else get a chill up his spine besides me and Jaspro?

I knew black panthers were rare, but the black ones with red fringe must be like one in a billion.

Amazing clarity.

What fog? That's the cat's breath.

If you look closely at the first pic, you can just make out his whiskers as he enters on the left side of the pic. The 2nd pic, which is really the 3rd pic, shows his tail exiting on the right. It's hard to see because he's black & it's nighttime. Did you try looking at it under a black light? It gives me goosebumps.
