DID YOU SEE THIS AMAZING VIDEO?? It was taken by visitor Tina Dorschel on the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary boardwalk early Monday morning. (Please be warned, there is a curse word at the end!)
This gorgeous Florida panther seems to have unexpectedly found himself cornered while traveling around a corner on the boardwalk -- and quickly sped up to get away. Panthers are shy creatures and this kind of encounter was a lucky and extremely rare experience.
