Whitish-Yellow 'BIG CAT' Reportedly Shot in West-Central Georgia

A west-central Georgia resident contacted me about a cryptid big cat that he had seen as a boy. His brother later shot and killed the big cat, described as whitish-yellow, with huge long teeth and 3 feet long.

I received the following account:

"Hello, Mr. Strickler. I heard one of your previous appearances on the Coast to Coast AM program in which you talked about cryptids, and you mentioned Wampus Cats. Well, I grew up in west-central Georgia right on the Georgia/Alabama line. We lived out in the country and had a swamp down behind our house.

I had a dog named Silver Chief. When he was a puppy I was a baby. We grew up together. I had graduated high school when he died. Anyway, that dog was not afraid of anything man or beast. We had been having some chickens killed at night and thought it might be a fox or something.

One night I heard the chicken hollering so I grabbed a flashlight and a .22 rifle and ran to the chicken house. It was dark but I saw a huge, white cat-like creature jump over the chicken wire fence. It was 7 feet high! I went in and there were six dead chickens.

It was not long after that on another night I heard my dog barking. I could tell by his bark he had something treed. All of a sudden he screamed and ran back to the house. He had never run from anything. My brother got the .22 and walked up into the woods. He was walking around and heard claws scratching on tree bark. He looked up right into the eyes of what we called a Wampus Cat. It was getting ready to pounce on him. My brother who was an excellent hunter just threw the rifle barrel up without taking time to aim and shot the cat right through the head.

He brought the cat home and I had never seen anything like it. It was solid yellow/white colored. Had long 3 or 4-inch fur, and a tail about 4 or 5 inches long. Even with the short tail, it was 3 feet long from nose to tail. We skinned him, salted his skin, and stretched it on the barn door.

I remember that we used to hear it screaming in the swamp at night. Sometimes it sounded like a woman screaming and sometimes it sounded like a baby crying.

I have never seen anything like it before or since. It had huge teeth that had grooves in the gums and lips on the opposite of the teeth. It had huge feet.

Here is a drawing I saw several years ago. Most people don't believe we actually killed it till they saw its hide on the barn door." - PGD


NOTE: I believe that this image that the writer sent is what is referred to as a 'Cherokee Death Cat.' The Wampus Cat supposedly has 6 legs, according to the legend. Here is a post I wrote several years ago, which was referred to on the Coast to Coast AM presentation - Big Cats: From the Appalachians to the Southeast Swamps. Lon

OUIJA HORROR! - INCLUDES A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE - LIVE Chat - Q & A - JOIN US! Lon Strickler (Host)

Welcome to Phantoms & Monsters 'Personal Reports' - cryptid & unexplained accounts directly from the archives of Phantoms & Monsters, and the Phantoms & Monster Fortean Research team. Narrated by Lon Strickler. Join us in the chat, discuss, and ask me questions about the accounts.

Featured in this edition:

The real history of the term ‘Ouija’ is a bonafide mystery. But the Ouija board developed out of 19th century America's obsession with spiritualism, the belief that the dead can communicate with the living, and the practice wasn’t seen as bizarre or weird. But I truly doubt that the first Ouija board makers envisioned that they had created a divination tool that seemingly opened the gates of Hell!

Ouija's prolonged success has carved a niche into American culture. But it has also created fear and fascination along the way. Like all divination tools, I treat it with great respect, especially since my own harrowing experience in 1976.

So, please listen to what I have seen, read, and heard over the years. Maybe you will come away with a better appreciation and deference when delving into the unknown. I will present the reports in detail and attempt to answer your questions from the chat room.
