US SIGHTINGS: Stunned Florida homeowner sees a cat in his backyard that's so big he thinks it's a rare PANTHER - but it turns out to be a massive bobcat
Florida homeowners may be used to spying cats wandering through their yards - but nothing prepared one resident for a feline so big he thought it was a panther.
The man, who did not want to be identified, said he was stunned when he saw the oversized cat taking a walk through his back garden in West Miramar as he sat down for breakfast.
He grabbed his camera and shared footage with NBC6 showing the beast roaming the lawn - and the nonchalant animal was clearly not too worried about being seen.
After the footage was viewed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, officials confirmed it was not a panther but a bobcat - albeit a very large one.
