A Troublesome Cat

FWC have been trying to catch a young panther spending too much time in & around Golden Gate estates Naples Florida. Unfortunately this cat has so far outwitted the panther team. I hate seeing panthers displaced for any reason & hope that once caught & relocated that this cat does alright in its new location.
