An unbelievable photograph has captured a bobcat hauling a shark along a Florida beach.
The picture was taken at Sebastian Inlet State Park, near Vero Beach by John Bailey, according to WPTV.
Bailey told the TV station that the cat caught the shark after entering the water.
A bobcat catches a shark in Sebastian — a WPTV report.
The image was reportedly taken at Sebastian Inlet State Park (pictured) near Vero Beach, Florida.
A bobcat goes shark fishing on a Florida beach.
However, Bailey told WPTV that the bobcat might have been scared by his presence, because it ran away toward the woods and let go of its catch.
Amy Kight, Busch Wildlife Sanctuary’s Animal Care Director, told WPTV:
My first reaction was amazement that somebody actually took that picture because bobcats are generally very, very reclusive.
You don’t really see them out and about too often.
According to a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the image is genuine.
FWC’s Liz Barraco told WESH:
There is no reason to believe it’s fake.
FWC officials told WESH that the bobcat exhibited typical behavior.
