There is an interesting article in today's issue of the Hendry-Glades Sunday News. It addresses the issues associated with an over capacity population of predators whose identity cannot be agreed on.

This morning we found yet another partially eaten victim of predation. USFWS Endangered Species/USFWS Southeast Region and MyFWC would like you to believe that panthers cache their prey to be eaten at a later time. In fact, from our experiences, most panthers have been found to eat only what their stomachs can hold. The remainder often rots in the harsh Florida environment and is quickly consumed by buzzards and other scavengers.

The third panther of 2015 was struck and killed by a vehicle yesterday, January 24, 2015. The dead panther, similar to the one in the picture, was found on I-75 just north of mile marker 132 in Lee County. We are on our way to yet another record year of panther deaths, and panther births. Until MyFWC and USFWS Endangered Species/USFWS Southeast Region take a serious position on management of this species, vehicle mortalities will persist. No amount of underpasses and fencing, will protect an unmanaged over capacity population of wildlife from certain disaster.
