http://www.lenconnect.com/ topstories/x1607840331/Black- panther-sighted-in-Adrian- Township

I wanted to pass along information about a verified black panther siting near my hometown of Adrian, MI. I did not personally observe the cougar, but a Michigan State Police officer (Trooper Sean Street, Monroe MI MSP Post) and several eye witnesses did report seeing it. The link above contains their accounts of this verified black panther sighting. Witnesses called the local police to describe sightings of a large black feline in the area. Upon arrival at the scene, MSP Trooper Street observed "a large feline walking in the field" (near US-223). Trooper Street said he saw "an animal, approximately 2 feet in height and weighing about 30 pounds, walk across the field about 75 yards away and into a nearby woods." According to Trooper Street, he has no doubt that this animal was a black panther. “There is no doubt it was a panther,” Street said. “It was identical to what you see in National Geographic Magazine. "The Michigan State Police have contacted the DNR and are awaiting assistance in the search for this animal.
