A Melbourne carpenter has posted up a photograph he took of a large black cat near the Mornington Peninsula.
The grass or crop looks 6 or 7 ft. I'm pretty sure it's a lab size dog,the tail is too thin for a cat but it's not an easy pic to identify.I thought the same. Is it possible to get an estimate of it’s height by where it comes up to the tall grass. If we knew the average height of that type of plant perhaps we could gage it’s size.
we have cougars down here but no black ones have ever been proven in the wild or captivity, some scientist even think that cougars cannot have the melanistic deficit to be black.... or something along those lines...lol.... but the black panther legend is a long one that seems to be told year after year. possibly ppl are seeing cougars in dim lighting or shadows?? but seeing one at all is something most ppl will never get to see in the wild.I've heard that people have seen black jaguars in the Southern states over your side of the pond.
