no you don't. there are 3 cats (jaguar, leopard, cougar) that can be classified as panthers, and none are native to NC. there used to be cougars throughout North America but they're now extinct in all but the west coast and southern tip of Florida.

Seen big cats in Cherokee often. Hell, one walked by our house one evening in guilford county. Cougars are everywhere.

Every now and then one will get struck by a vehicle in Cherokee and the same thing gets repeated: escaped pet. I dunno dude. I only know what I've seen. In east Texas they got bad for a short time going after my grandpas cattle. I shot a deer down there and it's whole backside was torn up pretty good.

I think what does resonate from the blogger is our franchise is boring to the neutral fan. That I understand. But it has little to do with our name choice. Everything to do with our 43% ish win record and small market with few national games. We dominated the Eagles on national tv this year and people just shrugged.

Oh yea Maple Leafs. Nothing scary about that at all. It's like theTrees or Plants or some other bland generic name derived from nature.
