A woman out for an early morning walk last year had the scare of a lifetime when she was greeted by Florida Panther.

The woman appears to be on a nature trail in a swamp when the wild animal runs past her. Apparently she heard something coming as she braced herself, but can you really prepare yourself for something like this?

Imagine being at a zoo and one of it's animals escaping and running past you. That's what this had to feel like.

We're just glad that animal was running out of fear and was not hunting at the moment. This could have gotten ugly for the woman behind the camera.

What a wake up call.
