Cryptomundo reports on a recent report of a mysterious “black panther” sighting in Decatur, Illinois. The emailer wrote:
I would like to report what appeared to be a very large black panther running across the cul-de-sac and in-between [the houses of 109 and 115 Cambridge Court, in the Windsor Village area] at about 9:30 pm [on March 11, 2010].
What baffles me is how it just seemed to disappear into the dark. We first thought it was a huge black lab [but we] then quickly realized, no this thing is running like a cat and much larger in size. There were four of us that saw it. It was real.
The sighting of “mysterious black cats” is one of the more interesting cryptozoological phenomena to come along in recent years. For more about the phenomena check out the wiki entry here.
