Florida Panther killed in vehicle collision is 19th mortality for 2011

I just received this tragic report from Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist Mark Lotz:

"The remains of an approximate 1-1.5 year old uncollared male panther, UCFP162, were collected this afternoon, 7/11/2011, on SR29 near the Owl Hammock Curve (about 5.5 miles south of Immokalee) in Collier County. The cause of death was vehicle collision. The carcass is at the FWC Naples Field Office and will be transported to the FWC Gainesville lab for necropsy tomorrow (7/12/11) morning. The remains will be archived at the FL Museum of Natural History. This is the 19th panther mortality (UCFP157’s skeletal remains were collected this year but evidence suggests it died prior to 2011) and the 7th road mortality for 2011."
