Here's an interesting post over at today's Anomalist:
Where the Phantom Panthers Roam The Paranormal Pastor. First the Good Pastor reviews some of the history of Erie, PA, a town that takes its name from the Eriez tribe of Native Americans which once called the area home. The Eriez took their name from the panther skins they wore. So, was what Pastor Robin Swope saw at 2:30 in the afternoon on February 17, 2010, a black panther, a vision called up from the history of the Eriez tribe or a shadow creature, much like the shadow men often reported by people who experience the paranormal? Here Pastor Swope recounts the sighting, revealing that there were no paw prints in the snow where the creature passed. Key quote: "As soon as I saw the creature, I knew it was something...else."
