A mystery cat that resembles a black panther has been sighted in New Zealand. The strange thing is about this is that New Zealand does not have any panthers, lions, tigers, leopards or wolves (except in zoos).

Hunters have now photographed the elusive big-black-cat of Canterbury, which most people assumed was only a legend.
