Everyone’s favorite uncle on Duck Dynasty is convinced he’s seen panthers on Phil Robertson‘s property in Monroe, Louisiana. However, black panther sightings in the state are a common myth amongst many residents.
A 2013 report from Lafayette-based outlet the Daily Advertiser refuted the panther sightings in the state. In fact, many sightings are called in, especially during hunting season. But no sighting has ever been confirmed.
“It’s sort of like Bigfoot,” Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham told the Daily Advertiser. “But the truth is there are no black panthers in Louisiana.”
In addition, the wildlife department shared a news release that year to debunk the ongoing panther myth.
“Every year, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries gets dozens of reported sightings of large cats, both tan and black,” the release stated. “When investigated, almost all of these claims turn out to be more common species such as house cats, bobcats, otters, dogs or even feral hogs.”
Yet the Duck Dynasty uncle has a plan up his sleeve to catch one of the alleged panthers to prove that they aren’t a myth. In the short clip from his podcast, they test out a trap that Si plans to use. It works on a willing human, but we’re not so sure about the mythical Louisiana black panther.
“I’m a man with a plan, boys. Not long till we have proof of black panthers on Phil’s land. Link in bio for the whole story!” Robertson wrote on Instagram.
