Lauderdale County, Mississippi
The back of its head was shaped like a tear drop that is flat on the top. When it reached the bridge, it jumped down and bank in one bound and was out of sight but we could hear its footsteps going on for several seconds. We were so scared we jumped into the car, turned around and got out of there as fast as we could go. It was months before I worked up the courage to go back in the daylight and by then any sign of it would have been gone.
I have been an avid hunter and outdoors man since age of eight and I have never seen anything like that before or since. I now live in NW New Mexico and have two friends here who have had sightings in this area. One of them is a sheriff’s deputy who was on duty at the time of the sighting.
Two years ago while panning for gold in southern New Mexico I had something throwing rocks down a ridge at me, but I never saw it. My German Shepard was terrified of whatever it was. The next morning I found human like footprints along the stream. I have not reported this incident since I didn’t actually see the animal. I just thought I would relate these incidents to show I am not a believer, I KNOW the animals exist. Please don't use my name on your website, I still remember all the ridicule I suffered when I discussed my Mississippi sighting with people.
I just found your website recently and think it is excellent. I want to relate a conversation I had at work today with a co-worker. I showed him a still from the Patterson-Gimlin film off of your website. The gentleman is 63 years old and has been an avid hunter in New Mexico all of his life. When I showed him the picture I jokingly said don’t tell me you've never seen one. He replied, "no I haven’t, but I had never seen a mountain lion until last year." It just goes to show you that a stealthy animal can stay out of sight.
