ADRIAN, Mich.

A large feline spotted Sunday near Grand Court Adrian has been identified by a law enforcement official as a black panther.

Trooper Sean Street from the Monroe post of the Michigan State Police responded at 5:51 p.m. to a report of a large feline walking in the field, according to a news release. Upon arriving at the scene, he watched the animal, approximately 2 feet in height and weighing about 30 pounds, walk across the field about 75 yards away and into a nearby woods.

"There is no doubt it was a panther," Street said. "It was identical to what you see in National Geographic Magazine."

Street said the panther did not appear to be aggressive, but he urges residents to be cautious and contact law enforcement officials if they spot the animal nearby.

Michigan State Police and the state Department of Natural Resources continue to monitor and evaluate the incident for possible safety concerns.

The sighting was the second in six months of a large feline in Lenawee County. On Nov. 1, Jason Cuellar of Adrian spotted and photographed a bobcat in Heritage Park in Raisin Township.
