MIAMI (CBSMiami) — It’s quite a stroke of luck to get a glimpse of a Florida Panther in the wild. But how about seeing four more — all at the same time? For one Florida man, that fantasy was as real as it gets.

“I physically was shaking! I was so excited,” Ezra Van recalls in an interview with WFOR-TV in Miami. Van heads out to the Everglades at least once a week because wildlife photography is a hobby. In all his years, he never saw what he found at Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve in January.

“(I) start taking pictures and another panther walks up and they both start playing with it. And anther panther walks up and then all three of them are toying around with it. Then a fourth panther walks up,” he says.

Van says the panthers stalked that vulture a little while longer and eventually let it go. “They hung out in the grass for little while, one of them looked over and meowed at me and they hung out for a few minutes then walked off,” he recalls.

Endangered Florida panthers are extremely shy and elusive so being able to see so many at one time is unheard of.
