The author, Charles R. "Buster" Humphreys, was a retired industrial chemist. Before his death in 2002, Humphreys collected reports of more than 200 alleged cougar sightings within a 40-mile radius of Wilmington, NC, including accounts from such eyewitnesses as Sunny Point employees, retired District Court Judge Gilbert Burnett and Wilmington lawyer Helen Hinn. Humphreys self-published a book, Panthers of the Coastal Plain, arguing for the big cats' survival in this region, and organized a 1993 seminar on the subject at the Cape Fear Museum, attended by staff members from the N. C. Museum of Natural Sciences. Finding scientific proof has been hard, though. "The probability of seeing a panther is exceedingly low, " Humphreys wrote.
