I believe it goes 1/2 of what you see and none of what you hear.I wouldnt rule out exotics.Ive caught burmese pythons in Calif.Ive had a friend shoot a tiger in los angeles and there have been 2 kangaroos taken here in wisconsin in the past 3 yrs.

I'm from Crawford Co. around the Robinson area. I too have seen several bobcats but the black cat that we saw was definantely not a bobcat.

I've heard sightings and have seen footage of a cougar in the Annapolis (Crawford Co.) area taken by a farmer. I can see how cougars would migrate to IL.But what I'm pretty sure of is that there are no black cats native to North America. Theygot here somehow whether they were pets from an exotic farm or what have you and someone turned them loose. I've also heard of people treeing these type of cats with dogs while coon hunting. Whoknows. I was always told believe half of what you hear.

I remeber the Kangaroo deal...that was sweet. Whatever the heck this critter is, it doesn't sound like anything that should be wandering around the midwest.

I would not rule out a Panther (Puma).
I have never seen a solid black one but have heard rumors of em all my life.
I have seenem a DARK Chocolate color though, easily confused with Black.
Try to locate scat and scratch posts.

Tracks left by Bobcat are the same size for front and rear.
A puma has smaller hind feetcompared to their front.
Bobcats middle two toes sit almost all the way out in front of their side toes on its forepaw.

A wolverine would leave tracks that look something like a cougar or wolf. They're in between the size of a hog and a bear and they are black. SHOOT IT AND LET'S SEE WHAT IT IS.
