Large Kitty Seen at Morris Bridge Friday
« on: June 28, 2010, 10:45:21 AM »
My co-worker was out Friday afternnon late by himself on his new Giant X2, said while going down the powerline trail just before the ditch, saw what he thought was a large Fox ahead of him, so he went faster to try and catch up, only to get withing about 10 yards and see what he swears was a Florida PANTHER. Said it had a reddish color to it and a long tail. I showed him the picture below and he said that it was just like this.
 
He don't drink, but being on a Giant I'm not sure if he had been into the Giant "kool aid" or not.
 
Keep eyes open out there and remember, you don't have to be faster than the cat, just faster then the slowest rider with you.

I worked for the Corps of Engineers and built Trout Creek in 1987/88.  I never saw one but there were tracks all over the place after the rains.

I saw a FL panther on Rollercoaster a while ago.  Pretty cool experience.
