They should check the area taxiderma's someone could have done this terrible this for the head to mount, or could have been hit by a car, than it was decided on to take head. Who knows either way these panthers are dying of in an alarming rate. I lived in SW Florida until March, and was amazed that nobody really seems to care enough to do anything. and as far as slowing down in the highway, when signs are posted showing a Panther Xing, nobody does!!

I will never understand the need for some "People" to KILL beautiful animals for NO reason! When was the last time a Florida panther attacked a human? They will pay for this injustice. "what goes around, comes around".
Some day WE will be the hunted. I truly believe that nature enacts her own, true form of justice!!

I totally agree with Linda...someone took a trophy! And...they are one sick piece of scum!

These animals have their habitat taken away, are run over by cars and now getting their head cuts off.

I feel so ILL so thankful there was no photo or I would of lost it totally!

Catch these people and HANG them! Never enough laws for these creatures, so sad!

OMG--I am just heartsick at this story. I hope the disgusting individuals who are responsible for this-are hunted down-and sent to prison where they will meet Bubba. Thank you Cher.

New Year's here in Florida sounds like a battlefield with all the guns being fired. Last weekend two shot gun blasts from the neighbors behind me... for touchdowns by the Florida Gators. Florida the gun-shine state. Thanks Cher!
