NEWSLINK: State suggests federal review of cats' status as sightings continue

The memo by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission staff and Commissioner Liesa Priddy suggests the agency focus its efforts on maintaining the panther population at a “sustainable level” in its primary territory and address a growing number of conflicts between landowners and the cats.
