Black wildcat sightings confirmed in East County

By Kit Kat

A pril 1, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) – For months, residents in rural East County areas have been reporting sightings of a large wildcat described as a “black panther” by witnesses. So Boulevard Planning Group Chair Donna Tisdale resolved to prove the presence of this extremely rare species in our region. 

“If it’s the only one in California, surely that will be enough to convince U.S. Interior Department authorities to halt construction of the Tule Wind Farm,” Tisdale told East County Magazine.
