There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Florida Panther (Puma concolor coryi)

While the cougar in general is listed as Least Concern, this subspecies of cougar on the other hand is a different story, as it's estimated that fewer than 100 wild Florida Panthers exist in the wild.    Back in the day, they could be found across Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, even parts of Tennessee and South Carolina. The reason for their endangerment is due to the fact that people thought they were a threat to them, livestock, and game animals (because goodness forbid the predators hunt game animals). Now, they face loss of habitat, inbreeding, fights with each other, and vehicle collisions. Post any other data, films, or photos on these rare cats.

One has been killed recently, struck by a vehicle, such a shame.
