_Residents in the rural New Jersey community of Vineland are used to seeing wild turkey, the occasional deer and once in a great while, even a bear.

But reports that a black panther has been roaming the woods have some people worried.

Residents over the weekend reported seeing a large black animal with a long tail walking through the fields and woods. From the look of it, they don’t think the feline is a well-fed pet, but a panther.

“I knew by the size that it was not a house cat. . . ,” said Zoe Paraskevas, who . . . said she saw the animal in the field behind her house on Saturday and quickly snapped a picture of it._
