Female Florida Panther Released in Wild with Hope of Becoming Mother

Sources reported that biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) were successful in leaving a female Florida panther into the Picayune Strand State Forest. She is left there with a hope that she might become a mother.

The female panther and her brother were brought up by the White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee since they both were of age of 5 months. They were rescued and protected by the team after the death of their mother.

Darrel Land, FWC panther team leader, said she is healthy and has grown to be a part of the wildlife. He added that the major motive of any panther rescue team is to save the panthers at bad times and then able to release it back to the wildlife.

He disclosed that the male panther will also be released sooner but in some other area for avoiding the chances of conflicts with the other territorial males.

FWC spokesman Kevin Baxter explained that the interspecies aggression is one of the major reasons of deaths in the animals. The decision of putting the young male panther in a region with other males will be proved as an unworthy step and will act as a disadvantage for him.

Darrell Land, the leader of Florida Panther for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said Save the Florida Panther Day is celebrated on third Saturday in March and is a golden opportunity for Floridians to think and act about the plight of these animals.
