Canterbury Panther- Absolute Proof

Print Post  
Took this vid of the famous Canterbury Panther while hunting the central South Island yesterday.

This is absolute and complete proof that the Canterbury Panther exists. NO QUESTION!!!

Quite easy to see it's feline movements as it climbs the hill. Easily 35kg and body size of a labrador.

Will submit this crystal clear footage to DoC first thing tomorrow morning.

Call off the search party boys and hand over the reward. I've found it!

Personally I think my photo of the not quite extinct, lesser spotted stewart island goose was better.

Are you sure it's not big foot?
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

This is ONE of those fabled Panthers .. I shot this one in the Weka Pass, North Canterbury, in 2009.  As you can see it is almost the length of my gun .. 1 metre long.  They are big, they are heavy and they have bloody sharp claws and teeth.  They are nothing more than a feral cat that has eaten lots of furry mountain herbs .. commonly referred to as Rabbits and mice.  because they climb hills all day looking for their food, they are a solid mass of muscle .. not like your spongy house hold cat.  Forget the crap about Panthers in New Zealand .. They are just large feral cats.  I also have a photo of a large Tabby one .. But I think this photo shows all I need to show.  take note of how shiny the coat is .. it was in really good condition, and had NO FLEAS .. Awesome specimen.

Nice pic, like that. We get em here too, big fit healthy buggers. Never seen a vet but they are survivors.

Never seen a black on though.

For all the funny comments and chuckles that have arisen from the feline images captured on the video, for when I was young my father caught a thing he called a "polecat" and tied it up with a rope in the cowshed as he had to milk the cows. He claimed it to be about the size of a cattle dog and bigger then the big dead cat shown above, this polecat chewed through the rope and escaped.
I also saw a very large wild cat near Hokio beach and about the same size as the polecat, this was about 10 years later.
I rather think that there is an occasional mutant of the ordinary everyday cat, like the huge eels that are sometimes caught.

A mate and I watch a large black cat in the Torlesse range a few weeks ago. It was 900 yards away and getting on in the afternoon, so we let to be. Normally we would have killed any cat in the high country.

It was a large cat!

so is there a panther out there or is it likely to be just one of those extra big ferral cats?maybe it could turn into a fiordland moose situation.what does everybody else think?


You're right actually, I'm almost certain its a juvenile fiordland moose.

Simply believe what you want to believe .. Dreams are free .. we simply don't have Panthers in New Zealand .. unless they are in captivity in a zoo, and even then, I don't think New Zealand zoo's actually have one.  Large Feral cats are more believable .. i know .. I shot one as I posted in an earlier posting.  Wink

This is ONE of those fabled Panthers .. I shot this one in the Weka Pass, North Canterbury, in 2009.  As you can see it is almost the length of my gun .. 1 metre long.  They are big, they are heavy and they have bloody sharp claws and teeth.  They are nothing more than a feral cat that has eaten lots of furry mountain herbs .. commonly referred to as Rabbits and mice.  because they climb hills all day looking for their food, they are a solid mass of muscle .. not like your spongy house hold cat.  Forget the crap about Panthers in New Zealand .. They are just large feral cats.  I also have a photo of a large Tabby one .. But I think this photo shows all I need to show.  take note of how shiny the coat is .. it was in really good condition, and had NO FLEAS .. Awesome specimen.


That's an impressive cat...nearly worth sending off to a taxidermist!

For some of us, the call to hunt is deep in our genes.  It's there, and those that don't have it will never know the deep and profound impact is has upon those of us who do.  Keith Draper.

Count yourself lucky he didn't come round to your house to show you. Took him 10 minutes to work out how to show me the 3.5 minutes of film on his camera.

In my professional opinion it's a goose.  Did you try calling to it?
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

I assume the animal in question is the brown blob in the middle that moves like a cloven animal, or is the chamois or Thar Im looking at being chased by a black panther ??
