Kevin J. May the mountain lion population in ND went from close to zero about 20 years ago to BIG in a short order, to the point we have a season and also school would have to shut down frequently with spotting's of lions near their doors. All that seemed to come to a quick halt when the oil boom started. I believe all the traffic out in the country sent them back to Montana and Wyoming.

Stefan, It's not too much of a problem as long as the customer runs a tad slower than me.

Kathy, known more for orchids than panthers this was in the Fakahatchee Strand a few years ago. I've seen others in Big Cypress and near RSW airport too.

Alexandra, the belief is that our wildlife is somehow of the smaller variety but that theory does not play out after seeing wild hog, bear, panther and deer of the normal and larger sized species. Hauntingly beautiful is how I describe this one!

Bob, I see their tracks far more frequently than the panther itself. I am glad they're making a comeback. I often think about the damage our 7lb. domestic cat can inflict and hope never to experience what a 70 or 80 pound female can do let alone an average sized 130lb. male. Note that males can jump 15 feet high and from 45 feet away. Panthers are superb athletes!

Just ask Roy Horn of  Siegfried and Roy  How destructive a big cat can be.

Did you take this picture? It's amazing, but scary under certain circumstances, Kevin.

No, I didn't Nina. I haven't gotten that lucky yet with panthers. I catch glimpses and hear them sometimes but this cat's pose was a rarity. There are about 200 of them in Florida and only 5 human encounters with attacks mentioned since 1897. Don't be scared!

Ginny, the jury is out whether they indiscriminately attack humans. Biologists feel that the reported attacks are based on humans going after them instead. I tend to side with the panthers after reading about and identifying their habits. When heading into their environment the roads have "Panther Crossing" signs as a warning to be on the lookout!

Pretty sure this was in the Fakahatchee Strand somewhat near Everglades City.

Georgie, just West of the Everglades and North of Alligator Alley towards Naples, FL we have a designated Florida Panther Preserve Area which will assure their continued existence I believe. Sorry I had missed your comment previously!

That's a big cat . . . . I would hate to meet it one on one.

Good luck and success.

They are a little shy Lou Ludwig so simply seeing one is all the excitement I need. I hear you!
