Black cougars do not exist.
At least none have been verified by science, killed by hunters, mounted by taxidermists or reared in zoos and other animal facilities.
But are there white ones?
In January 2016 an interesting story broke via KLTV out of Tyler, TX. Landowner Mitchell Cox of Hughes Springs captured on video what he and many others thinks is a “white panther”.
“When I first saw the white animal, the first thing I thought was, it was a dog. I feel blessed to actually be able to see it,” said landowner Mitchell Cox in the KLTV story.
“The cat jumps across about a six foot creek there. At first, my initial thought was it was an edited video, but upon talking to people I believe it’s true. A white albino mountain lion,” investigator Hershel Stroman, of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office told KLTV officials.
The video is interesting and the animal moves like a cougar but without a closer video (this one was short 50 yards away) it is difficult to tell.
