Editorial Reviews

A mysterious black wildcat terrorizes citizens. A mountain lion attack is an event sensational enough to make national headlines. But a new and more ominous breed of creature seems to be stalking the suburbs: huge, black wildcats. Sightings from Texas to Minnesota suggest that this unknown predator is becoming more common and it's only a matter of time before a human falls prey to one.

When sold by, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

Phantom cats (a.k.a. Alien Big Cats or ABCs) is one of the more curious paranormal phenomena I've encountered in the Fortean and cryptozoological literature. It seems that big cats, usually black in colour, are spotted all over the world: from peaceful Little England to the hills of Australia, these mystery felines which aren't supposed to exist keep insisting on showing themselves. As usual, there is very little physical evidence for the creature, except a string of cattle killings and even attacks on humans attributed to the alien black beast. In contrast to other ghost stories, this one has been taken seriously enough by at least the British authorities. The British Marines were once sent out to capture the elusive Beast of Exmoor, without much success. On the web, I've seen the inevitable conspiracy theorists blame the government for hiding the truth (in this case, the Australian one).

"Lions in the Backyard" is an episode of the never-ending U.S. TV series "MonsterQuest". The series is usually extremely boring and slow-paced, but this episode struck some kind of chord in yours truly. All over the United States, people report seeing black panthers, including in states where no big cats are supposed to thrive: Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Maryland...

A game warden charged with keeping track of cougars reveals that only one out of five calls from the public are about real cougars. All the rest are about black panthers! However, no black cougars are known to science, although the mutation is theoretically possible. Black jaguars are another possibility, since the jaguar is on the verge of re-establishing itself in the United States. However, the reports of marauding panthers are just too many to be explained by the small jaguar population in Arizona.
