LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A panther has been spotted surprisingly close to the city limits, near populated areas, and a group of people say they have the pictures to prove it.
The cat is calling 3,500 acres of land in Fort Myers its home.
The panther has been seen roaming the grounds of the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve.
The map shows he's living right in the middle of a concrete jungle, in a place where he has enough food to survive, but he will eventually wonder to find a mate.
Florida Fish and Wildlife installed trail cameras to document the cat.
FWC said so far this year, nine panthers have been killed, six by a vehicle.
Thr cat became endangered back in the 90s, and the last time a panther was spotted at the preserve was back in 2006.
