Florida Fish and Wildlife ecological experts found a deserted baby panther of almost one week old while carrying out research in the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge in Collier County. The cub was cold and all alone.
They eventually took the baby panther to the Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida in Naples. Where vets took care of cub, feeding and raising his body temperature back to normal.
Amazingly, almost two weeks after being found, the little one is well and ready to go to his temp dwelling at the Lowry Zoo in Tampa. When he is well enough the kitten is going to the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. This will be his forever home, a place where he will be able to socialize with other Panthers.
Hopefully, he will make a speedy recovery and get well with others of his own kind. So he can learn how is to be a panther. He will need a lot of care and attention; all the foundations involved in this successful rescue could do with a little aid. Check their web pages to find out how you can help.
