Reward Offered in Panther Poaching Case

A $5,000 reward is being offered to help find whoever shot and killed an endangered Florida panther last month. Remains of the poached cat were found on the side of Seminole County Road (just north of Orlando, Florida). Florida panthers are a federally protected endangered species and only about one hundred remain in the wild. The charges for killing a panther may include fines and jail time. Anyone with information about the poaching incident is encouraged to call 888-404-3922.
