Officials: Florida panther struck and killed by vehicle

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — An endangered Florida panther has died after being struck by a vehicle. Wildlife officials say it's the 12th panther death attributed to fatal collisions, out of 14 total deaths this year. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the remains of the 14-month-old uncollared female panther were found Saturday in Collier County on a rural road near Naples Lakes Country Club. Florida panthers once roamed the entire Southeast, but now their habitat mostly is confined to a small region of Florida along the Gulf of Mexico. Up to 230 Florida panthers remain in the wild.
