Best guess: an unusually-colored Florida panther out of place in Mississippi or an escaped pet. Looks way to big to be a bobcat - and the build is wrong.

Tennessee earlier this year acknowledged that cougars were back on the western part of the state. Mississippi borders there.

Being in the open that close to people in the day time leads me to believe it belonged to someone. Big cats are usually more stealthy.

They can get a relatively clear video of a "mystery cat" but not Bigfoot?

Perhaps mystery cats don't have interdimensional cloaking devices like Bigfoot does.

It's plainly a cougar, and the dark appearance is just shadow effect. Watch carefully the parts where it is in direct sunlight. Well within the normal color range.

Florida has black panthers. They're rare, but they still exist. It could be one of those. Or a cougar, like Deb says.

All the cougars/pumas/mountain lions in North and South America are the same species and there has never in history been a confirmed case of a black one. The animal in this video is in a shaded area most of the time but when the sunlight hits him directly he is a dark tan like the typical mountain lion.
