Poston, I was kind of thinking along the same lines as you.  The cat's leash was too tight and he lost consciousness.

I have only seen two Panthers in the wild in Florida during my lifetime.  The first was as I was pulling a John boat out of a phosphate pit south of Bartow about 30 years ago and the other was crossing the road two summers ago on HW 64 between Parrish and Duette.  The males really cover a lot of ground looking for mates.  Unfortunately a lot of their traditional ground in Florida has been developed or fragmented to the point that several are killed on highways.  Most of our big cats are inbred (too much frolicking in the shallows) and cats from out west have been introduced to deepen the gene pool.

Interesting caveman, was it the game department that brought in more lions from out west?
Old LT40HD, old log truck, old MM forklift, and several huskies.

Hybrid Panthers Helping Rare Cat Rebound in Florida


In 1995, the state and federal governments began a genetic restoration project. Eight Texas females were released in South Florida and produced 17 kittens. The last of those females were removed last fall and retired to a private wildlife conservation center.
Genetic intervention will have to continue as long as there are fewer than 100 panthers, because the cats wont be able to find mates theyre not related to, Land said. But the next phase wont start until more studies are completed on the long-term results of the last effort.

This excerpt was taken from Big Cat Rescue.  The west I was referring to is Texas.

Its called "re-wilding" or was when i was studying these people 15 years ago.  They want lions, tigers, grizzly and wolves to roam the earth again.  Theyre a small bunch but were very active and tended to get jobs with influence in terms of wildlife policy.  Many were into monkeywrenching, tree hugging and releasing smuggled animals illegally.
