Most dramatically, a black panther, the species which we believe exist only in the fictional world was spotted roaming majestically, for the first time at Patiem Beat in South Goa’s Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary.

The whole country was left awestruck after a picture of the panther was tweeted, by Dr Pramod Sawant, the Chief Minister of Goa. The picture was captured in one of the cameras installed in the area.
The forest area of the Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary is inhabited predominantly by tigers, and this is the first time a black panther was seen walking around. Forest officials stated that they are going to probe more into the affair and find out whether the creature wandered solo or was in a pack.
