Sometimes, people forget that they share the same world with diverse wildlife. Strange and fierce creatures can suddenly pop out of nowhere and hang around your porch. Case in point – a Florida native named Phil Hendra was taken by surprise when he saw the animal sitting by his father’s porch in East Fort Myers.
Phil Hendra and his young family went on a trip to visit his parents’ home. The day started out fine and all of them were excited to have a fun time. Everyone was enjoying some downtime inside the home when Phil’s son, Philip Jr., noticed something outside.
The young boy told his dad about the “funny dog” he saw on the porch. Definitely curious, the Florida native went to check what his son was talking about. However, Phil froze in his tracks upon seeing the animal casually lounging in his dad’s property.
It turned out to be a rare Florida panther that could easily bite his jugular in a matter of seconds. The unbelievable sight was both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. Florida panthers are known to wander in private properties especially if there’s another animal in the home.
