PANTHER ROAD DEATHS


A Safe Path for Panthers
 - by Elizabeth Fleming. 

Three endangered Florida panthers were killed while trying to cross roads last week in south Florida. This is gut-wrenching news, especially for a species with an estimated 100 to 160 adults left in the wild, and we who spend so much time and effort protecting these big cats all feel each loss deeply. But why is this happening now, and why so many?

NORTHWARD BOUND!

PUSHING FORWARD
I educate people about Panthers here in S Florida & applaud Jim Strickland for his attitude. These cats deserve nothing less than Respect.
The State animal of Florida should be supported by anyone who chooses to make their home & living here.

Why cougar hunting needs to be well managed.

Interesting study confirming what happens when cougar populations are disrupted by aggressive hunting. Overhunting cougars can be a safety risk for us all, cougars & humans.

Bad decision, they are creating a population sink in what was to be one of the greatest success stories in the country for a naturally restoring cougar population. Unfortunately the local SD commissioners do not respect the value of Americas great cat.
