Australia's number one black panther sightings podcast
When Ben discovered three unidentified newborn creatures high up in a Willow Tree when he was a thirteen year old kid, the mystery would haunt him for the rest of his life. Ben, now a grown man with a family finally wants to go on an investigative journey and find out more about the mystery panther sightings which have been reported across Australia since the early 1800's. Ben will speak with experts, zoologists, witnesses, skeptics and historians to uncover some of the theories as to how these large cats may have come to be on our shores. The only species of cat meant to be in Australia is the introduced feral cat Felis catus . So what are thousands of people seeing? And why have we yet to get any definitive proof? Regardless of what you believe you might just change your mind. Come on this wild ride with us you will truly be amazed.
Whether you've seen it first hand, lost livestock to an unknown creature or even think you know how the panthers may have come here, we want to talk. If you feel strongly about it being a myth then we'd also like to hear why. Email us with your story and we'll be in touch. Investigating big cat sightings today
I was dubious about asking for help here but decided to eat humble pie. This project has been a side gig that I fit in between slogging out part time work and full time changing nappies. If you're interested in where this investigation may lead and can spare something that will help cover the out of pocket expenses to put it all together I'd be forever grateful. Your support and contributions will greatly assist me to continue the search for panthers and large cats across Australia.
