Sightings of the endangered Florida Panther are on the rise, with two occurring recently. In one, the big cat was just chilling on someone’s front porch, which makes me wonder if Floridians really want them to come back. In the other recent sighting, one came cruising by a woman on a wooden walkway at Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
On the other hand, Florida is approaching Australia in terms of bizarre animals that may or may not kill you. So the return of the panther may be a good thing if it goes after those really weird looking Torch Key raccoons or hybrid snakes. And if the cats take out a casual hiker, we’ve probably got enough to spare one or two. This is America, after all.
Now if I can just find one of the mountain lions that supposedly lives in my neck of the woods. Or one of the bears.

Florida probably has some weird version of the orca, too.
