COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The remains of a 2 to 4-year-old uncollared male panther were collected on Saturday, south of CR 846, east of Immokalee in Collier County.
The panther was found by a landowner who smelled the remains.
The cause of death was intraspecific aggression as evidenced by puncture wounds in the skull.
The carcass will be transported to the FWC Wildlife Research Lab in Gainesville for a complete necropsy. This is the third panther mortality for 2013.
People are encouraged to report sightings of an injured or dead panther by calling the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone. Another option is texting Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply).
