After being hit by a car, an endangered Florida panther perished.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, it is the 20th of the 22 panther fatalities this year that have been directly linked to crashes.
Wildlife authorities said that the 6-month-old female panther’s remains were discovered on Monday in Collier County along a country road.
Once widely distributed across the Southeast, Florida panthers now largely live in a limited area of Florida around the Gulf of Mexico. There might be 230 wild Florida panthers left.
