BIG CYPRESS, FLORIDA (FOX 13) – While he was hunting deer in the Bear Island area of the Big Cypress National Preserve, Fred Lehman captured a rare sight.
Dressed head-to-toe in camouflage, Lehman was quietly waiting for a potential target. Instead, a very large cat strolled by, seeming not to notice human presence.
The cat appears to be a Florida panther, and a large one, at that.
Lehman said he has never seen a live panther up close, so he reached for his phone to document the moment.
That’s when the panther seemed to notice his movement and stopped to look before running away.
