Ok...I'm going to document the first 2 sightings of large black cats in Kentucky. Both of these are personal experiences:
1.) About 7 years back, I was on my way home from West Liberty, KY on 460 about 4 miles out of Ezel (all in Morgan County), near the community of Mize. The time was around 8:30 pm in the fall of the year and I was on my way home from a class that I was taking at MSU campus in West Liberty. As I was driving down the road with my high beams on, I saw this large black cat leap from the left-hand side of the road, land in the center and then leap again into the high grass on the right-hand side into field of weeds. I stopped the car in the middle of the road and angled it so that my headlights were bathing the field. I saw the eyes staring at me. What I remember the clearest is that it was large, very large, with a long curling tail and that it was able to clear the road in two leaps. I'm positive that it was misidentification of another animal, nor was it simply a large house cat.
2.) 2 years ago my wife and I were on our way home from her mother's house in Bath county near Olympia Springs. We were taking the backroads home as this is actually quicker than the main roads. The time was around 12:00-12:30 AM and there was no traffic along this road. The exact area where we were had several houses and more more "inhabited" than several other areas, but as such, the ditch lines had a tendancy to retain water better. As we approached the driveway to the last house, we noticed this large black object crouched at the ditchline. We proceeded past it and I just stared the whole time. It was drinking, and tracking our car with its eyes. I can see the distinctive feline nose as plain as day. Once past it, my wife looked and me and I looked at her (I had already stopped teh car in the middle of the road) and we both said at the same time, "Did you just see that?" We turned around and attempted to see it again, but it had already moved on.
The one thing that both of these locations have in common is that they are both in the eastern part of the state near the Daniel Boone Forest and both are near Cave Run Lake. As a sidenote, both locations have a deep history of both visual sightings of large black cats and large cats (mountain lions) and of reported vocalizations.
Ok, these are my stories. Now, where are yours? Please use the links on the right to submit your large cat reports, or any other paranormal experiences that you may have had...
