There has been a purported panther sighting close to Lithgow.

Belinda Baker uploaded footage to Facebook on the weekend of what she believes to be Lithgow’s infamous Black Panther.

Ms Baker said she saw a creature roaming along a slope in Kanimbla on Monday afternoon “not far from the Coxs River”.

“We watched it walking around for about half an hour,” Ms Baker wrote in her Facebook post.

“It was huge.”

Earlier this year a Perth man claimed to have seen the creature as well.

VIDEO: Is this the legendary black Panther of Lithgow?

Greg Culley and his 13-year-old son Samuel were walking in bushland north of Knapsack Reserve by Lapstone Creek on April 14 when they heard a tree branch rustling about 20 metres away.

“There was a thud like something came out of the tree. We thought it was a roo. But it was a large, shiny, black animal as big as a German Shepherd,” Mr Culley said.

“It was a big mass of black, flying at stealth mode along the ridge. Sammy saw the tail. It moved like a cat.”
