ARTICLE: Florida's panther problems get a writeup in the New Yorker

We've written recently about the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission's attempt to quietly cut back on its efforts to expand the state's panther population.

The argument for doing so, put forth in a draft memo posted to the agency's website with little fanfare or attention, was that the 180 or so breeding panthers that live in Southwest Florida are "straining and currently exceed the tolerance of landowners, residents and recreationists in the region."
