Florida Panther decapitated

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is seeking information about a decapitated panther carcass found along the Florida Turnpike near the Osceola and Indian River county line Thursday. Anyone with information can call the Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922; they can remain anonymous and may be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward if their information leads to an arrest.

FWC officers responded to a report of the dead panther about 2 p.m. Thursday Nov. 19. The carcass was on the shoulder of the road on the southbound side of the turnpike in the southernmost portion of Osceola County, near Yeehaw Junction.

“The partially decomposed remains appear to be that of an endangered Florida panther,” said FWC Lt. Rick Brown. “It also appears someone cut off the head.  We encourage anyone who knows anything about this to call Wildlife Alert as soon as possible.”



  1. Looks like more thieves at the public trough. Hopefully they will catch whomever did this in short order.

  2. What chaps me is the thought of all the ass-hats out there that have info on the killing, but won’t turn the slime bag(s) perps in even for the reward.
