Go North Young Cats

We wish we could bless the release this week of two captive-reared panthers into the wild. However, releasing a pair of captive-raised two-year olds into a system at carrying capacity, unequipped for the territorial fights – especially the male – that take so many young cats in South Florida, might be a virtual death-sentence.

Letting them be the seeds for recovery North of the Caloosahatchee River barrier, where the only hope for this marooned population resides, would give both these young individuals, and the population as a whole, a non-fighting chance.
