US SIGHTINGS: Mystery Of Black Cat Grows In Coweta
After a large, black cat-like animal attacked and carried away a Coweta County couple’s pet dog earlier this month, a number of Cowetans have also reported seeing a similar animal in the county.
Josephine Young, the owner of Max, who is thought to have died in the attack, described the animal as a large cat with a long tail. She estimated it was about five or six feet long, but only around two or three feet high. She is certain it was not a coyote, and its coat was shiny and black. Young lives on Timberland Trail off Smokey Road south of Newnan.
Young is not the only person in Coweta County who has seen an animal like this, though.
Annie Joe Berkowitz, who lives in the area of Coweta’s B.T. Brown Reservoir north of the Madras area, said she also had a near-close encounter with a large black animal in April.
