Phil Hendra made an unexpected discovery on his front porch and it’s not something you see everyday. He walked outside to find a Florida Panther chilling out.
Hendra, a resident of East Fort Myers, told the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute that “It stayed for about 20 minutes and laid down for a bit. It looked at us inside the window and then slowly walked away, and we have not seen it since. My parents have lived here since 1988 and they may have seen a younger panther about two years ago, but nothing compares to this once in a lifetime experience.”
