A 2-year-old male Florida panther died after being struck along the Polk Parkway in the Lakeland area, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission reports. It’s the 11th known death of one of the endangered felines this year; all were attributed to vehicle collisions, Fox 13 News reports. Five were in Collier County, three in Hendry and two in Glades. The Lakeland panther’s remains were found Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Can you help us understand how this is possible since the National Wildlife Federation says they only live in the southwestern tip of Florida and numbers only in the hundreds? How could there be one getting hit by a car in Lakeland? Is there a lot more of them than previously thought?
