Within a few hours of publishing an article on a 'big cat' sighting in Cullman County, AL.com has received dozens of comments from readers saying they have had similar sightings.
Allen and Melony Goodwin say a big cat resembling a Florida panther crossed the road in front of them as they were traveling on a motorcycle on County Road 831 in the Logan community of Cullman County three weeks ago.
Biologists with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources say there hasn't been any evidence of Florida panthers in the state for more than 50 years.
They don't say it isn't possible, but they don't have any real, documented proof.
So, AL.com readers if you have seen a big cat in the wild in Alabama take our poll, tell us your story and send us your pictures.
