Large Black Cat Photographed in Oklahoma?

The photo below of what appears to be a large black cat was sent to me from the guys at Expanded Perspectives ( The only thing they were able to tell me was that the photo came from Oklahoma.

Now, we've been here before so I can't vouch for the authenticity of the photo or the location where it was allegedly captured. I would welcome any additional details if someone out there knows the story behind this photo.

It is intriguing but I have some concerns about the photo. Lots of vertical "seams" that look a bit fuzzy in it. That probably isn't clear but it's the best I can do to explain what I'm seeing. On the other hand, I'm no expert on photo manipulation and it certainly looks like SE Oklahoma so, who knows?

Again, I'd like to hear from anyone that might have the scoop on this one.


  1. We have our share of cougar up north and from personal sighting I can tell you he looks for real except for one thing...the one we saw, had a tail nearly as long as his body., and he was a mature cat. Anxious to hear more.

  2. Not much to go on. It looks more like a dog to me.

  3. My wife called me last night about 5:00 and said she was looking at a big black cat. It was bigger than a bobcat and had a long black tail. We've seen bobcats around here for years, and it was no bobcat. When we found this picture, she said that it's what she saw.

  4. This could just be a mountain lion. Where I live black mountain lions can be quite small. Maby the size of a black lab. They aren't common, but they do appear from time to time. These cats have been known to go rogue, and co all over America.
