Young Florida panther shot dead on Big Cypress Preserve

"This particular panther was found dead Saturday afternoon amid the slash pine and saw palmetto in the Turner River Unit of Big Cypress, 7 miles north of U.S. 41, preserve spokesman Bob LeGross said Monday. The body of the 18-month-old female was lying about 50 yards away from one of the primary off-road vehicle trails."

The investigation will center on ORV users that were out Friday. That narrows it down but not necessarily a hunter. I guess it depends on the caliber used. Large reward offered for information leading to the arrest. Probably $10,000 to $15,000.
