Panther to Be Released
A young, female panther was struck by a car in May of 2013. Still a kitten she suffered injuries to her lungs, ribs as well as a broken leg. Panthers are an endangered species, only an estimated 160 are believed to roam in the southern portion of Florida.
The rescued female is believed to now be ready to re-introduce to the wild. While it is very rare for scientists from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to treat these rare animals in captivity, the kitten had needed surgery to treat its injuries and extra help was provided by White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee. Fully recovered, biologists plan on setting this rare animal free soon, permitting it to return to its natural habitat.
