Black Beast. The legend of a panther
Ercolino, an old cowboy that lives and works in a small village, saw a black panther wandering around his hunting lodge.
Some of his friends believe it, others think it's a legend. But Tony Scarf, an actor and the greatest expert on metropolitan panthers, has captured one.
