Limping panther captured on Golden Gate Estates trail camera

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.– The Florida Panther is one of the state’s most protected animals.

A trail camera captured footage of a panther limping through the woods of Golden Gate Estates in Collier County. Some are worried it might have been hit by a car.

“The Southwest Florida region is one of the most stable habitats for the panther. They say you need at least 3 stable habitats for population growth and we only have one right now.” Mitchel said

“The number 1 cause of unnatural panther death is human interaction, largely from vehicles,” said Clifford Mitchel, from the Sierra Club Calusa Group.

Injuries from cars are one of the greatest threats to panthers.

“So when you do get those impacts, you can have internal bleeding, bone breakage, that affects the panthers ability to hunt and actually eat, which threatens the population.” He added. 

Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed the animal appears to be injured but should be able to recover on its own.
